We have been chosen AGAIN for the Hannaford Cause Bag program.
For this round, visit the Hannaford in Valatie, New York during October, purchase this bag, and the Valatie Free Library will receive $1! A great way to cut down on all those plastic bags that cause clutter and harm the environment! Use and reuse these strong “Create a Little Karma” bags to carry your groceries or library books! Good for the Valatie Free Library! Good for the Planet!
