Donate Your Plastic Feed Bags to the Garrettsville Library
The Garrettsville Library will be having a recycled feedbag tote program on Saturday, March 10. In order to make this program a success, the library needs the donation of plastic 40 and/or 50 pound feed bags. You can bring the bags to the front desk at any time during library hours. Don’t forget, when donating the bags, to ask about the program- make a tote for yourself. The library thanks you in advance for your participation in making this a successful program.

“Name the Candy Bar” at the Library
The Garrettsville Library invites patrons to participate in the “Name the Candy Bar” contest now through February 11. Library patrons are asked to look at a cross-section of various candy bars in order to identify each one. The entry with the most correctly-named candy bars wins candy of their own. In case of a tie, a drawing will be held. This program will end on Saturday, February 11, so hurry on in and “name that candy bar”.
