The library has partnered with the Nevada Youth Training Center, Elko County Social Services, and the Highland Manor. These organizations have provided names of children, elderly, and those with special needs, along with what type of gifts they are wishing for at Christmas, so that community members can provide gifts to those who may otherwise not get one at Christmas.
Please stop by and select a tag from the tree to provide a merry holiday to those in need in our community. We ask that all presents be wrapped and then delivered, with name tags, to the Elko Branch Library no later than December 16, 2022 at 5:00 p.m.
The Elko County Library does not qualify any names for the tree.
For additional information, please call 738-3066.
It’s the Season of Giving and Mybrary has brought back our annual food drive.
Mybrary has partnered with the Lamoille Women’s Club to help CADV (Committee Against Domestic Violence) this year. Bring in non-perishable food items through January 7, 2023, to the Elko Branch Library. All food items will be distributed to those in need for the holidays and to replenish their food pantry.
They are most in need of pastas, pasta sauce, soups, cake mix and frosting, and brownie mixes.
Food items with a past “best if used by…” date will not be accepted.
As an added incentive, while Mybrary no longer charges overdue fines, we know that accidents happen and items can be lost or damaged; if you bring in food donations, we will waive up to $10 in processing fees for lost or damaged Mybrary materials. Don’t have any fees? You can still donate and help waive someone else’s. It’s giving twice as much.
Help members of our community have a good holiday season and take care of your fees all at the same time!
For additional information, please call (775) 738-3066.
