The library is participating in the Mister Rogers' Neighborhood Sweater Drive again this year. We collected over 500 sweaters, jackets, and other winter clothing items for the drive last year. So many people have something in the back of their closet that they never wear or don’t need. Take advantage of the season of giving to give something vital to someone in need. You can drop donations off at Red Light Roastery, the Hot Springs Family YMCA, the Garland County Library, and the library's weekly courier stops.
