The Library’s Holiday Store: Where Kids Go to Shop

November 13, 2013 — Shopping for families, friends and teachers is easy, fun and affordable for kids at the Library's annual Holiday Store at three library branches – the Library Center, Library Station and the Brentwood Branch Library.

Kids through age 18 can shop for gifts priced from 25 cents to $5. Friends of the Library volunteers help children shop for everyone on their list, purchase and wrap their gifts. Proceeds from the Holiday Store support the children's Summer Reading Program.

Before they shop, kids can join Reindeer School at the annual Holiday Open House. We'll read stories, play games, make crafts, nibble on "reindeer food" and get photos with Santa!
