Christmas Tree 2014

 

Want to help build the children’s library collection?  A Christmas tree will be in the multi-purpose room (during the Holiday Tea event) with holiday ornaments, each representing a different book that the library would like to add to the children’s collection.  To help, all you have to do is choose an ornament off the tree for the book that you would like to donate.  Then bring the ornament to the circulation desk, sign the ornament, and make your donation to the library for the amount shown on the back of the ornament.  The library staff will then order the book, and when it arrives, a bookplate with your name will be inserted in the book.
