This month the Washington Public Library collected mittens, gloves, hats, scarves and socks for people in the community. The library’s Mitten Tree collected nearly 150 items in total. Director of the Library Debbie Stanton said that the items were donated to HACAP, public health and the police department in hopes of keeping people a little bit warmer this winter. She was happy to see quite a few homemade items donated this year.
The library will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday next week for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
