LME Library to participate in the Holiday Homecoming Celebration

During Princeville’s Holiday Homecoming Celebration, the Lillie M. Evans Library will kick off its Foods-4-Fines program. From November 28th thru December 23rd, you may bring in nonperishable foods items. For each item donated, the library will forgive $1 of your fines. Did you find a library item that’s been missing for months? Bring it in and each item will only be a maximum of $5 in fines and eligible for Food-4-Fines amnesty! Don’t have any fines? No problem—we will still be happy to accept your donations! All donations will go to the local food pantry to benefit those in need. Note: Fines will not be removed from unreturned items or items returned damaged.

Santa letters can also be dropped off at LME Library starting on November 28. Santa’s mailbox will be out with our other holiday decorations, and children may drop in their letters to Santa. Letters with return addresses will be answered by Santa, so be sure to include them on your letters!

In addition, the LME Library will also have extended hours (5-8pm) during the late night shopping on December 1st. Kirby will be in the library for free face painting, and we will host a variety of “Minute-To-Win-It” type games. Chase away the cold by competing in the rabid reindeer game, dancing to the wii, or eating cookies in the cookie face game. The Friends of the Library will also be holding their annual raffle so be sure to stop by the LME Library!
