The Hot Weather Drive will run from June 1-30.

Summer weather can be especially hard on people experiencing housing instability. The Forest Park Public Library provides resources including toiletry supplies and food through the Comfort Cabinet and Little Free Pantry. These services are entirely run through donations. Please consider donating if you are able to.

We can accept items at the Library during open hours, items can be dropped off directly in the Little Free Pantry, or you can send items through our Amazon WishList.
