Coat Drive

Give the gift of warmth at the East Hampton Library! We will be collecting coats, hats, gloves and scarves to benefit families in need. We will be collecting these items through February 26th. Stop by the reference desk with your donations to be added to our coat drive.

In the next coming weeks, we will have the winter items displayed on racks to be looked through and chosen by our patrons to take home.

The Great Give Back 2021

Last week, the Adult Reference Department collected items to be donated to our local animal shelters. With great success, there were many pet supplies donated for homeless pets including food, kitty litter, dog crates, cat carriers, treats, and more!

On Saturday, October 16th, the library hosted another way to give back by having volunteers stuff gift bags to be given to adopters of new pets. Forty-eight gift bags were given to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons to be handed out to families when they bring home their new pet. Each gift bag included new toys and treats for either a cat or dog going to their forever home.

Thank you to all of our patrons that participated in this local initiative!
