Drop Your Drawers at the Library!

Wednesday, Nov. 1 – Sunday, Dec. 31

Make your next visit to the Library a brief one, for a good cause, as part of Jessamine County Public Library’s Drop Your Drawers campaign. Drop off packages of new underwear for boys and girls, preferably sizes 4-16, until Dec. 31 at the Customer Service Desk. Donations will help replenish Jessamine County schools’ supplies of emergency underpants and provide direct assistance to each school’s Family Resource Centers. The need is great. Schools are handing out 50 pairs a month to children who need clean underwear due to accidents at school or issues at home. Because parents often are unable to bring fresh underwear to their children during school hours, children can miss valuable learning time in the classroom.

Read Off Your Fines

Wednesday Dec. 20 – Tuesday Jan. 2

Reading must be done in the library and completed in 15 minute increments. Fines will be forgiven on overdue items only, not lost items. Each 15 minutes of reading forgives $1.50.
