New Patron of the Week!

David Morris has been named Collinsville Library's most recent "Patron of the Week". David was nominated for donating an entire tray of canned goods during the Library's recent "Food for Fines" program (in which the Library takes $1 off of your fines for every item you donate for the Collinsville Food Pantry), even though his fine was only eighty cents! David's favorite items to check out from the Library include military fiction and history books, CDs (including Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam) and movies (starring Denzel Washington). Aside from being great Library patrons, David and his wife Christina are very involved in the Gateway Area Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (and help with everything from Trivia Nights and Silent Auctions to Mud Runs and Bike Rides). David and Christina also volunteer with the Collinsville Animal Shelter in their spare time. The Collinsville Library is very grateful to have David and Christina as patrons, and we're very fortunate to have them as members of our community.
