The Library's Annual Toy and Food Drive has just wrapped up and we are happy to report that this year has been another success. A sincere thank you is due to the McMaster community for the generous donations of gifts, food, and pet items. Also, a big thank you to the staff in the Library and many other departments who assist in the drive each year.

All the donations go to city residents who genuinely need the help, via the downtown Hamilton branch of the Salvation Army, a tradition that dates back almost 40 years now.
