Springtime Card Project
Individuals and families are encouraged to spread some sunshine to our neighbors by making springtime cards for the clients of Community Caregivers. We’ll collect the cards April 20-May 14, and Community Caregivers will distribute them to clients. These efforts are greatly appreciated to help brighten someone’s day.
Create one or more spring-themed cards no larger than 5 x 7, or repurpose an old card
Write an uplifting message inside and/or sign your name if desired
Drop off your card(s) in the Springtime Card Project Box inside the Normanskill room during the library’s curbside hours
Community Caregivers will provide envelopes and mail all cards received
National Drug Take Back Day
DEA National Drug Take Back Day is a nationwide semi-annual event on Saturday, April 24, 10-2 p.m., providing a safe way to dispose of unwanted medications. This drive-through event is scheduled to be held in the library’s auxiliary parking lot (an immediate right turn upon entering MercyCare Lane), in partnership with the Guilderland Police Department. However, due to our construction project, the location may change; please check the Events calendar of our website for updates and further details.
