Only the following non-perishable food items will be accepted from the list provided to the library by the Food Bank: canned fruit, especially fruit cocktail; canned tuna fish; mushroom soup; noodles; peanut butter; strawberry jam or grape jelly; boxed gelatin; canned green beans or corn.
Willard Memorial Library will be closed Monday and Dec. 25 for Christmas and January 1 for New Year’s. The library will close at 5 p.m. Dec. 31 for New Year’s Eve.
