Kids Holiday Gift Shop

We invite you to join as again this year to another Kids Holiday Gift Shop on Saturday, December 2nd, between 9 am – 1 pm.


Parents and caretakers, bring your children and while you wait upstairs, the children can shop downstairs in the kids room. There are lots of items to choose from, and all are affordable. Prices range from 25 cents, 50 cents to $1. All kids enjoyed shopping on their own and then having nice gift surprises for the upcoming Holiday.  Purchases will be gift-wrapped and decorated. This was a huge hit last year!


Additionally, grown-ups might be tempted to buy some tickets for various basket raffles. All baskets are ready on display as of November 9th  through December 21st. Stop by and have a look. Ticket prices are: $1 for 1 ticket, $5 for 6 tickets.


The monthly Book Sale is going on at the same time.

Thank you, Jane Klonsky!

We had a wonderful time with Jane, who introduced her book Unconditional , older dogs, greater love to our library. Slides were shown, stories exchanged and many books signed.  Jane brought her dog, Charlie, and two patrons brought their dogs, as well. Through Jane’s generosity we took in $160.

The book is available to be checked out now!

Thanks so much to all who attendend!
