Beth Clower, from the Glen Ellyn Public Library presented to us the idea of the Community Cupboard!
The Community Cupboard is a door-less cabinet in the lobby near the Library Services Desk that contains free items available to anyone who needs them. Available items vary depending on donations. The containers are intentionally not labeled, and the bins are clear so that people can identify the contents. People are encouraged to help themselves to items they need.
The Community Cupboard is totally donation based. No tax money is used to purchase the free items in the Community Cupboard. To donate items, please use the Glen Ellyn Public Library
