Share the Holiday Spirit
This year the Library is offering families two great ways to share your holiday spirit.
Donate to Holiday for Giving
Bring new, unwrapped children's books to the Children's Room now through December 11th and we will bring these books to our town's Holiday for Giving program so they can be distributed to families in need. Help us Decorate our Giving Tree
Now through Dec. 20, those interested may bring newly purchased or handmade scarves, mittens, gloves, and hats to adorn the branches of the tree. Items can be for any age, child through adult. Donations will be delivered to local community charitable organizations in time for the holidays.
