Bring Us Your Bags!

ATAC members ask patrons to help!

Athol Public Library

568 Main Street

Athol, MA 01331


The members of ATAC, the teen advisory group at the Athol Public Library, are helping shoppers get ready for the plastic bag ban which will go into effect January 1. A large red box is located in the lobby of the library and library patrons are invited to contribute any extra reusable shopping bags they may have. Later, bags will be available for distribution to people in need of shopping bags. ATAC member Julia LaFosse created some of the signs on the box and is displaying some bags which have already been donated. For more information, email Heidi Strickland at
