Book Bundles of Joy, Memorable Moments / Holiday Traditions
During the month of December, the library staff will provide book bundles of joy. What are book bundles? They are a group of themed items bundled together and labeled so you can grab and go! The bundles will include books, Cds, Dvds, and e-book recommendations. The bundle of books will allow patrons to find items without having to search the shelves or the online catalog. The book bundles will be located under the Christmas tree. Don't forget to stop by the library during the holidays to get a bundle of joy for you or your bundle of joy.
There are a variety of holiday traditions from around the world. What is your holiday tradition? We invite our patrons to share your memorable moments or holiday traditions with us. We will display your treasured memories and traditions in our display case. If you would like to participate please email, call, or bring your information to the library.
