The Elizabeth Township Public Library Partners with the Elizabeth Food Basket

Beginning September 1, 2016, donations for the Elizabeth Food Basket can be made at the Elizabeth Township Public Library. The Elizabeth Food Basket is a charitable organization that distributes food to those in need within the River Ridge School District. Non-perishable food items, such as cereal, dried pasta products and canned goods will be accepted as well as cash donations. The bin for donations will be located just inside the door by the library’s circulation desk.

In conjunction with the initial Food Basket donations, the library is offering a ‘fine forgiveness’ incentive. Any late charges for library materials can be paid with a donation to the Food Basket during the months of September and October.

The Elizabeth Township Public Library is located at 210 E. Myrtle Street in Elizabeth, and is open Monday-Wednesday, 1:00 to 5:30 p.m.; Thursday 1:00 to 7:00 p.m.; Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday.
