Holidays are Just Around the Corner!

In keeping with the season of giving, the Edith B. Siegrist Public Library is pleased to share its intention to offer amnesty to patrons owing fines in the month of December, in exchange for donations of personal care items. The “Forgiving for Giving” campaign will officially kick-off during our annual Holiday Open House, on Friday, December 4th, following the Vermillion Chamber and Development Company’s Downtown Parade of Lights, at approximately 7 pm.

The “Forgiving for Giving” campaign will collect donations of full-sized personal care items that will then be distributed by the Vermillion Food Pantry and the Domestic Violence Safe Options Services during the holidays. Patrons who have accumulated overdue fees, with certain restrictions, will be able to have those fines waived in exchange for donations of much-needed items, such as diapers, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, deodorant, disposable razors, hand soap, dish detergent, toilet paper, etc. A more detailed list, and further details about the amnesty restrictions, is available by stopping by our Circulation Desk or calling the library at 677.7060.

Holiday Open House visitors will be invited to participate in the creation of festive holiday gift bags, which will also be donated to the chosen charities. In addition, our open house features an opportunity to have pictures taken with Mr. & Mrs. Claus, a variety of holiday-themed crafts, and tasty treats and hot cocoa! It’s THE place to be after the downtown Parade of Lights and Tree-Lighting ceremony.
The Edith B. Seigrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street, Vermillion. Contact us by calling 677-7060, or by emailing vplstaff@vermillionpubliclibrary.org.
