Vacation Toiletries Drop-Off Site

The Millstadt Library would like to offer a helping hand to those in need.web 1

But we can’t do it alone, we need your help too.

You know when you go on vacation and they have those complimentary little toiletries, like small bottles of shampoo or conditioner, even disposable razors or sample size boxes of tissues and for some reason you can’t help yourself but bring them all home and have nothing to do with them but stuff your bathroom drawers full of your new collection? We have just the solution.

We at the Millstadt Library have become aware that you can do something useful with these little, travel-sized toiletries and are offering our location as a drop-off site for these items.

We are connected with a representative of a local organization that takes these donated items every Wednesday and delivers them to those in need.

Just getting a bag of soap, shampoo, and other toiletries, the things we often take for granted, could help change someone’s day, perspective, or even more. And all you have to do is round up those little bottles of toiletries to help out.

So, if you plan on travelling this year, for work or fun, far or near, please pick up those hotel, motel toiletries and bring them on up to the Library. We’ll do the rest.

Additionally, any small or travel-sized toiletries you would like to donate are appreciated as well.

We’ll be collecting these items all year.

We’re open Monday-Thursday 12-8 and Friday-Saturday 10-2. For more information, feel free to call us at 476-1887 or stop by at 115 W. Laurel.

Thank you very much!

Holiday Open House

The Library had it's first Annual Holiday Open House and it was a total success with 78 people in attendance and 25 new cards issued.  The cookies and hot chocolate hit the spot and the drawings and attendance prizes had people leaving with smiles on their faces.  The Open House put a lot of people in the Christmas mood.

We would again like to thank the Millstadt IGA and Breadeaux for sponsoring, in part, the drawings for $25.oo gift cards.  The business  in Millstadt are truly wonderful.  They support of the organizations in the Village and the people calling Millstadt their home.  Please support them in return.
