Kids love giving holiday gifts that they've bought all by themselves for family, friends and teachers at the Library's annual Holiday Store. You can find a Holiday Store at six branches this year!
Children up to age 18 can shop for gifts priced just right for kids — 25 cents to $10. Volunteers help little ones shop and wrap their treasures. Parents or siblings are welcome to help, too!
Items include jewelry, mugs, toys, holiday ornaments, socks, slippers, wallets, watches, iPad cases, frames and lots of items for the guys and gals on everyone's list. Don't forget the family pets!
Proceeds from the Holiday Store support Library programs.
While you're shopping at the Holiday Store, drop by the Holiday Open House events for all ages at each branch. Make memories while you enjoy holiday festivities with books, crafts, games and activities.
