Fine Forgiveness week!!
We will also be offering a Food Drive to support the City’s Food Pantries. Bring your donations to the library that week and we will forgive fines on your card. Please consider items such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo, soap, feminine hygiene products, deodorant, toilet paper, paper towels, detergent and dish detergent, as these are often in short supply. (Certain limitations apply. Ask library staff for details.)

During the week we will also have on display selections from the Choose Cohoes for Art collection, as well as an assortment of examples from Ms. Linda Larmon’s personal doll collection.
