Throughout the entire month of November, GMPL will offer a Food for Fines event for those wishing to pay fines with food. Bring in unexpired, non-perishable items for $1.00 off fines, faxes or copies, not to exceed $5.00. Your generous donations will help Grafton's local food pantries, so all items collected will be used right here. Paper items such a toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and other items are also greatly appreciated. Please no glass jars.
The Grafton-Midview Public Library believes that parents are their child's first teachers, and getting books into a child's hands as soon as possible helps them start their educational journey and their path to success. The Library is working with community organizations to distribute bags to new mothers and their babies in order to promote early literacy. Each bag contains two books, bib, a toy, and a variety of tips on reading to their babies. For more information regarding this program, please call the Library and talk to the Children's Department.
