Wow. Thank you to everyone who came to eat and shop at the library last Saturday. After totaling up the proceeds from all three events (breakfast, cookies, and book sale) and at least one generous donation, the Friends made about $1200. You library supporters never cease to amaze me. We are humbled and grateful.
It’s that magical (and tasty) time of year! Come celebrate at the library this Saturday, December 6th.
We’re hosting Santa Claus for breakfast on Saturday morning between 8:00 and 10:30. Regular and chocolate chip pancakes, applesauce, beverage, and a sweet treat are on the menu – still at the low price of just $3.00 per person. Santa will be ready to hear your gift requests, pose for a photo, and even read a story or two.
Over the past few days we have been encouraged to spend, spend, spend. Today is a day to think about giving back.
Giving Tuesday was created by a coalition of nonprofit groups a few years ago as a sort of antidote to the over-the-top retail promotions we are bombarded with this time of year. A day to pause in our shopping to remember the good work done by charitable organizations every day of the year.
