Also, don’t forget that we’re forgiving library fines this week when you donate new, unopened, unused, and non-perishable food, toiletry, clothing, and sundries, all of which will be given to the Stepping Stone Shelter.  See our website at for suggested donation items. Even if you don’t have any fines, you can still contribute to helping the homeless here in Liberal by donating.

And if you didn’t yet receive a copy of this year’s Kansas Reads to Preschoolers book, Is Your Mama a Llama?, we will have free copies available at the front desk.  This classic picture book is a great gift for the preschooler, baby, or toddler in your life.
