Lebanon Public Library maintains a free book cart at Witham Memorial Hospital. A couple of hundred selections are available at any one time. The cart is available to anyone visiting the Hospital, patients, employees, and volunteers! Individuals may keep the materials as long as they like. Library information is posted on the cart, including how to get a library card and program guides. Stop by, grab a book, and see what is happening at your Library! If you have materials you would like to donate, please contact Tammy.
