It's called "Warm Up Rochester."
On the second floor in the library there's hand knitted scarfs hats and mittens.
Library staff member Lynette Perry is the coordinator for this effort.
She tells KIMT that they want to provide more than just books and movies for library patrons.
“It's important to us that we provide some basic needs to some of our patrons and some of those basic needs are just to be warm in the winter,” said Perry.
The library will continue to collect winter gear all season long. You can just drop off your donation at the youth services desk.
