 3 patrons win Thanksgiving baskets for reading books at Smithfield Branch Library
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama- Three patrons who checked out books at the Smithfield Branch Library during November won Thanksgiving baskets as part of a giveaway at the library on Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2016.
The winners are: Jesse Allen, who checked out “The Color Purple;” Charles Smith, who checked out a “Willie Wonka” book, and Demetrius Hayes, who checked out “To Kill a Mockingbird.” All three patrons won Thanksgiving baskets from Smithfield Library that included a turkey, canned goods, bread rolls, celery, tomatoes and other vegetables.
Allen said he was surprised to find out he had won one of the Thanksgiving baskets. “I’m really excited because I never win anything,” Allen said. “Thanks to the Smithfield Library. I visit this library all of the time because I live in the community.”
