Caldwell Library Collecting Cell Phones for Soldiers
Phones will help buy calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas.
The Caldwell Public Library is participating in Cell Phones for Soldiers.
Gently used cell phones could be donated at the library, 268 Bloomfield Ave., beginning Tuesday, Sept. 11 through Veterans Day, Nov. 12.
Library hours are Monday and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Wednesday, from noon to 8 p.m., and Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon.
