Rosalind Candy Castle Chocolate: $2

Dormont Library is now offering chocolate bars from Rosalind Candy Castle as fundraiser items! These bars are a little bigger than a 2-ounce fundraiser bar, at 2.25 oz, but the price is the same. The library will receive $1 from the purchase of each $2 bar.

Plain milk and dark chocolate bars are available, as well as crisp rice, almond, caramel, and peanut butter. Treat yourself and support the library the next time you visit; fundraiser candy bars are available at the front desk.
