Free Diapers at the Library and more in News & Notes

O’Fallon Public Library is more than simply books. It is also a hub for the community to share, learn and support one another.

To this end, one of the newest services O’Fallon Public Library offers is a “Diaper Depot”. The Diaper Depots are designed to help families and their little ones to stay clean and healthy. Diapers from the depots are free of charge and no questions are asked.

Here are other locations for Diaper Depots in our area:
• Albers Village Hall
• Breese Sheriff’s office
• Belleville Public Library
• Caseyville Public Library
• Fairview Heights Public Library
• O’Fallon Public Library
• St. Clair County Health Dept. (WIC)
• Scott AFB Squadron First Sergeants (Military Only)

The diaper depots were
created by partnerships with
Metro East Diaper Bank.

The Friends of the O’Fallon Public Library recently held its bi-annual mega book sale and experienced a tremendous outpouring of support from the community both in book donations and purchases. A big thanks to all of the volunteers who participated in the book sale. We couldn’t have done it without you!

The Friends are taking donations now for the next book sale. And, there’s always something new to peruse in the “Book Nook” section of the library. It’s on the first floor on the east wall near the Teen Room.

Need something to get your creative muscles working? Try Creativebug, one of the library’s many digital
