The 2020 Great Give Back is upon us.

The Great Give back is for you, the patrons of the Pine Bush Area Public Library and our community members, to participate in meaningful and supportive community actions through donations. This has been a very rough year for all of us.  Therefore, The Great Give Back is more important than ever!

For the Great Give Back 2020, we are asking for donations of food items for the new food pantry at the Bullville Methodist Church on 17K in Bullville. All boxed, canned and bagged food products will be accepted.

We are also asking for donations of electronic devices that no longer serve their purpose in your household.  These items are cell phones, tablets, notebooks, laptops, and their associated cords, etc. Your donation will be wiped clean of any digital information remaining on the item by our Tech Guy, Ed. So, no worries about your personal information getting into someone else’s hands!

All donations will go to students and seniors who are without. We will accept donations until October 30th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at either the Main Library or the Library Community Room.
