Designer Bag Donations

Do you have a brand new designer bags with tags on it that just isn’t your style? Consider donating it to the Friends for our 2016 Designer Bag Bingo event!

Our first bingo event sold out and we’re hoping to repeat that success in 2016. In order to make it even more profitable for our library, we’re putting out notice early to keep us in mind when you’re shopping for a new bag or when you’re gifted a bag that just doesn’t suit you. It may be perfect for someone else!


Please feel free to contact us at with any questions or if you’re interested in donating. We’re accepting donations year round.

Thank you for your support!

Trash to Ca$h Large Shipment

Drink Pouch Brigade Giveaway

Thanks to Chatham Park’s very large first shipment of drink pouches, we received points from TerraCycle as well as earned multiple entries into the Drink Pouch Brigade Giveaway Contest….and are excited to announce that WE WON!

Thank you Capri Sun for the drink pouch pencil cases and a storage bin to help with our collections. Without your sponsorship for the Drink Pouch Brigade, this opportunity to raise money for our local library would not be possible.

We also want to thank Chatham’s principal, Sara Christianson, for allowing Trash to Ca$h into her school. And we want to send out a very SpEcIaL thank you to the dedication and persistence of the Cafeteria Manager, Natalie Torpey, and Head Custodian, Denise Pelka, for making sure that all drink pouches are placed into the Trash to Ca$h can! Trash to Ca$h wouldn’t be a success without these wonderful people!
