Would you help us celebrate Chinese New Year?

A request to all our readers and friends:

My name is Lisa Matthews and I am the Special Projects Coordinator for the Robeson County Public Library System in North Carolina. We would love to continue to offer the patrons of our rural community fun and exciting programs.

Our rural community is the third poorest making us the poorest in North Carolina. Our patrons are suffering. We are planning on having an event for Chinese New Year and other programs for adults and kids. Would you consider donating any items to help us celebrate? If you have samples or any items even with defects we would gladly take them off your hands.

Thanks so much for your time.

Lisa Matthews,


101 N Chestnut Street

Lumberton, North Carolina


P.S. Tax letters will be sent.
