1. Food Drive

    We are thrilled to announce the 2nd Annual Library Food Drive, taking place February 19 – March 1. Many of our neighbors face food insecurity and we would like your help to place food in the hands of those that need it the most. Drop off in-date and unopened canned, boxed, or bagged nonperishable food items at any HCPL branch in Waynesville, Canton, Maggie Valley, and Fines Creek. 

    All collected food will be distributed by our friends at Haywood Christian Ministry. For questions, contact Zachary Jones at zachary.jones@haywoodcountync.gov, or call 828-356-2502.
