Oak Ridge Public Library Collects Donations for ADFAC


May 14, 2018

This year’s donation drive at the Oak Ridge Public Library was a great success. Donations were collected for the entire month of April on behalf of the local organization Aid to Distressed Families of Appalachian Counties (ADFAC), and in honor of National Library Week (NLW), April 8-14.

Library staffers wish to thank everyone who donated items and contributed to all of the NLW events. NLW is a celebration of libraries and their integral role within the communities they serve. In turn, the Oak Ridge Public Library is honored to assist the community by hosting a donation drive for ADFAC, which serves local impoverished families.

Thanks to the generosity of our patrons and community, donations totaled more than 30 toiletries, 29 school supplies, $50 in gift cards, and 15 packs of diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products. An ADFAC representative collected the items on Wednesday, May 2.

Check back with us again next April to see what the library has planned for National Library Week in 2019 and how you can participate.
