The staff at the Back Mountain Memorial Library recently came up with an innovative way to invite its patrons to help with a great cause. From August 4-16, library patrons were offered an alternative way to help pay past due fines with a donation to the Back Mountain Food Pantry instead. Since the demand at the food pantry has exceeded 17 percent since January, the plan could not have come at a better time. More than 100 pounds of food were donated not only by library patrons, but library staff members as well. Library staff members are, from left, Megan Messersmith, Margaret Susko, Krista Connolly, Noreen Gladey and Martha Butler, Library Director.
