Produce to Share

The Library has some extra produce to share. We had several community members who brought the extras in and we want to share those with you. if you would like a honeydew melon, nectarines, pears or tomatoes from the boxes handed out yesterday please come by and grab a few.
Remember we have a We Share table at the front of the library so if you have food to share, bring it by and we will make sure it gets shared.
Thank you in advance for your help in sharing food with our families in Erie. We appreciate all your help.
