Want to help build the children’s library collection? Throughout the month a Christmas tree in the lobby of the library will contain holiday ornaments, each representing a book that the library would like to add to the children’s collection. You can sponsor a book by selecting an ornament off the tree and making a donation of $10 for each book you choose. You name will be printed on a bookplate which will be inserted in the front of the book.
