Our Library as Community Center – Spreading Holiday Comfort & Joy

The community room at the Tiverton Public Library was transformed into a “Giving Market” for families in need through Amicable Church’s Thanksgiving Basket Project. Library patrons, through Food for Fines, and dozens of other organizations contributed to the project which provided 700 meals including 117 frozen turkeys!

A big thank you for helping fill — and refill 10 times over — the Friends holiday gift box in the library lobby from Nov 8 to Dec 8. Eleven large sacks of spanking new gifts for children and infants were delivered in December to East Bay Community Action in support of WIC and other programs.
