The Giving Tree

Each year the library purchases as many children's books and craft supplies as possible. 
This Christmas season if you are interested in helping us replenish our supplies please stop by and select a gift tag from our "Giving Tree."

Step 1: Select a gift tag. They represent beloved children's books that need replacing as well new titles and craft supplies. Hardcover books are requested.

Step 2: Bring your purchased item to the circulation desk and we will replace your gift tag with a thank you.

If you are interested in participating, make sure to stop by the library this December!
