Library collecting books, food

BUCKSPORT — Interested in providing holiday gifts and sweets for local kids in need? The Buck Memorial Library, located at 47 Main St. in Bucksport, is collecting new books to be distributed to area families by Bucksport Community Concerns.

The effort is the library’s 27th installment of the annual “Joy of The Holidays” gift drive. BookStacks, located at 71 Main St., is offering a 10 percent discount on books purchased for the drive.

The library also is collecting donations of peanut butter, jelly, cinnamon and sugar, but only if they are donated in plastic jars. A glass jar might break on the way to the food pantry, library staff said.

The deadline for donations is 11 a.m. on Dec. 13. The library is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
