Thank you to everyone who braved the frigid temperatures to enjoy a pancake breakfast with Santa and shopping for bargains at the book sale and tasty homemade cookies. Your fortitude (and appetite) resulted in nearly $900 for the Friends of the Library last Saturday, which will go toward programs and special events in 2014.
Over the past few days we've had Gray Thursday (the holiday formerly known as Thanksgiving), Black Friday, Small Business Saturday (which we fully support) and Cyber Monday - which some online retailers are now stretching into Cyber Week. I understand the allure of holiday shopping, but I hope there is a little money left for donating to worthy organizations. Hence Giving Tuesday.
