Hartford Public Library will be holding a winter coat giveaway on Thursday, January 7.
The giveaway will take place at Barbour Library, 261 Barbour Street, from 2:30 to 3:30 pm.
Coats will be distributed on a first-come, first served basis. Limit one coat per individual. The coats were donated by Button Up Connecticut, a non-profit organization whose mission is to collect gently used winter coats and distribute them to residents in need all throughout Connecticut.
The Library on Wheels will also be on hand to distribute free books, new youth books, and craft supply bags.
