GLOUCESTER CITY LIBRARY 2ND ANNUAL HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE WAS A BIG SUCCESS!
During the holiday season this year, the generous citizens of Gloucester City came to the library with bags and boxes of much needed nutritious food for our neighbors in need. This year we collected 20% more than last year, providing 468 lbs of food, which makes 390 meals for struggling families in our community. Thank you to all those who supported the Food Drive.
