Clinton-Essex-Franklin Library System has been selected to be a part of the “Hannaford Helps” Reusable Bag Program featuring the new bright blue Bag!
This program is designed to create revenue streams for nonprofits like us. We are so honored! Please help support the CEFLS mission by buying this beautiful blue reusable bag between now and December 31, 2015. A $1 direct donation is included in the $2.99 purchase price of the bags.
So what are we waiting for? Share this news with your family, friends and coworkers! Funds raised will help CEFLS help our member libraries, and that means people like you in our three-county region. Look for the “Hannaford Helps” Reusable Bags on your next trip to Hannaford in Plattsburgh. In advance, we would like to thank you for participating in “Hannaford Helps”.
