Celebrate Community This Holiday Season And Share A Book For Christmas!

Our Share A Book fundraising campaign is being extended into December as the Library needs to be able to buy more books in the New Year. Please consider Share A Book for Christmas gifts. Make a donation on behalf of a friend or loved one and we'll give you a hand-crafted card to let them know of your gift of community reading. Or make a donation of $20 or more and we'll give you a 3D printed thank you ornament.    

If you believe in sharing please donate. Visit your local library for more information on how you can support Share A Book or click the link to our donor card. Thank you so much for belonging to the Library!

PS. Our kooky book sharing lady in the videos is Chief Librarian, Laura Emery. We like her, even though she only ever wants to talk about books. :)
