Pick Up Last Minute Gifts, Tickets to First Night at Libraries

Still have gifts to pick up? Save yourself some time and pick up last-minute gifts at the Between Friends gift shops at the Library Center and Library Station, open during library hours.

The stores are full of gifts for all ages, hostess gifts, locally made jewelry and art, journals, books and more. Proceeds benefit the library.

Speaking of shopping, the annual Holiday Stores at the Library Center and Library Station Nov. 27-Dec. 5, generated profits of $3,900, which will fund many of the special features offered during the children’s summer reading program.

Total sales from the Holiday Stores at both libraries hit a record $7,220.95. The annual store is operated by the Between Friends gift shop Manager Shelli Kaminski, her staff and volunteers.

Many thanks go to the children and parents who chose to spend their quarters and dollars for gifts at the libraries’ stores. We hope you’ll join a library summer reading club in May and see how your gifts keep giving.
