Program Description

Event Details

Climate change means more extreme weather everywhere. We'll swap winter clothes to minimize waste and keep our neighbors warm.

If you have clean winter clothes in good condition—like last year's coat that your kid has outgrown, hats you knit during the summer to pass the time, or just something extra—bring them for someone else to use. If you need something for winter, look here first! We'll keep leftover coats into the winter or until we run out, but you can pick something up anytime.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
