Library News November 18, 2022

Happy Thanksgiving!  The library will be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

Food for Fines continues through November 30.  The Heart of America Library will remove overdue fines if patrons bring in a non-perishable food item that has not expired, packaging is not damaged and has not been opened.  A can or box of food equals one fine waived, and cannot be used for books that are lost, damaged or need to be replaced.  All food items will be donated to the Pierce County Food Pantry.  Everyone is welcome to donate items.

If you are interested in signing up your children for Early Out Art Camp on Wednesday, November 23, there are registration forms available at the library.
