The Niles Public Library District staff members donated 35 Thanksgiving bags (six more than 2015) to Niles Family Services on last week. Each bag included a $25 Jewel gift card and non-perishable items for a Thanksgiving dinner. The effort started in 2011 when the then library director heard that Niles Family Services needed more goods to help feed families in the community during the holidays.
