Thanks to All Who Donated to LPL's November, December Drives

by Mark Bialczak | 11 months ago

LPL patrons brought plenty of items to share with others during the holiday season.

We wrote our weekly column for the community Eagle News Online and Star Review to thank so many folks for their spirit of giving.

And, to note, we're accepting birdseed and suet bells though Jan. 30 to help feed the birds of the Village of Liverpool.

The Van is loaded

Staffers Edina Osmanovic and Mark Bialczak packed the LPL2Go Community Engagement Van with toys donated at the LPL to bring to the downtown Syracuse Oncenter for the Salvation Army Christmas Bureau Distribution Day.

The community stepped up for the Liverpool Public Library’s donation drives in a major way during November and December.

“I would like to give a big shout-out to the patrons and staff of the library for supporting our many donation drives during the holiday season,” said LPL Director Glenna Wisniewski. “I am happy to report we donated more than 400 hats, mittens and scarves to Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry in Liverpool. Staff also delivered 164 pairs of new socks and 13 baseball caps to the Samaritan Center right before Christmas. Our food drive and toy drive were also a huge success. Thank you for your generosity and caring spirit.”

New, unwrapped toys dropped off to the LPL for the Salvation Army Christmas Bureau Distribution filled every inch of space in the LPL2Go Community Outreach Van for the trip to Oncenter in downtown Syracuse. And so many non-perishable food items were left in the LPL’s donation barrel and bin for the Interreligious Food Consortium that volunteers made two trips to the library to pick them up.

During January, patrons can help feed the birds in the Village of Liverpool. The LPL is accepting wrapped and packaged birdseed and suet bells through Sunday, Jan. 30. Items can be left under the tree in the library main room.

Larger bags of birdseed can be left in the designated area in the LPL underground garage.

The seed and suet bells are used in feeders in front of the Wildlife Habitat Garden, located in the rear of the Dinosaur Garden lawn next to the library on Second Street.

In addition to the pretty Wildlife Habitat Garden, the lawn features the popular dinosaur statues, Rain Garden, covered pavilion and big musical instruments. It’s an inviting location to visit in the village all four seasons.
