MAC's Little Library at the Depot
Have you ever been waiting somewhere and really wish you had a book to help pass the time? We are collecting books for our "Little Library" for Amtrak passengers who may have this same issue! The MAC office is located in the Mattoon Train Depot, just behind the elevator. Bring your books, any genre, and we will make sure they are put to good use. Amtrak passengers and the council appreciate your generosity!
