Come support the community and help save a life by donating blood here at the Library on Wed. Sep. 30 between 2:15pm and 6:45pm.  Sponsored by NJ Blood Services, donors can simply walk-in or make an appointment by calling 800-933-2566 or logging onto http://tinyurl.com/oblibrarydrive. To donate, people must be between 17-76 years old and weigh at least 110 lbs; 16-year olds can donate with parental consent and those over 76 can give with a doctor's note. Donors are encouraged to eat before coming and must bring ID. In addition, the Library is offering "fine amnesty" where donors will have up to $10 in fines forgiven. Simply bring your donor certificate to the circulation desk to credit your account.
