See you at the Library!

South End Community Center Coat Drive - Library Drop Off Spot

Spread a little warmth this December! The South End Community Center is collecting clean, gently used toddler and children's winter coats in sizes 3T to 12. The Stratford Library Children's Department is a drop off point for donations, so feel free to stop by anytime with coats. 

One of our librarians has been scouring the shelves for books about coats, so here is one of our favorites. Thanks for your help!
