The Meigs County District Public Library is once again accepting non-perishable food items as well as outerwear such as scarves, gloves or hats in lieu of fines through the end of December. Library patrons may bring in non-perishable food items and receive $1.00 off library fines for every item donated. Please remember to check the expiration date! Outerwear must be new with price tags. Patrons will receive double the price of outerwear items off their existing library fines. The collected food items will be distributed to local food pantries serving our community. The outerwear will be donated to needy families in Meigs County. Community members who do not owe library fines but who wish to participate are welcome to bring donations to any of the Meigs County Libraries. All donations are appreciated.
The library has recently partnered with the Meigs Soil and Water District office to serve as a drop off location for small electronics recycling. Items which are accepted include cell phones, pagers, ipods, ink cartridges, ink jets, game boys, cassette tapes, CDs, floppy disks, calculators, remote controls, computer mouses, cameras and most other small electronics. Items are accepted at all library locations (Middleport, Pomeroy, Racine and Eastern Elementary), during regular hours of operation. Larger items such as laptops will not be accepted at the libraries, but can be dropped off at the Meigs Soil and Water District office. Help reduce electronic waste by recycling.
