The Patten Free Library’s new Teen Pantry is open, offering free food, toiletries, school supplies, first aid, clothing and other items to youth in need.

The Bath Area Food Bank is providing most of the supplies, but community members and library patrons have also been donating. Members of the library’s knitting circle have provided homemade scarves and hats.

New, unused items needed are clothing, toiletries and school supplies, along with non-perishable food items. Donations can be dropped off in the library lobby.

The pantry is located in the library’s Teen Space.
