Sylva-- The Jackson County Public Library is collecting new blankets for people in need. New hats, scarfs and gloves can be donated to the drive, too. Those in need of warm winter wear can come by the Library and take some items for use. The Library asks that items for donation be new and in their packaging. Those in need can either go to the Library, or call Mountain Projects at 828 586- 2345 or the Library at 586-2016.
