Now that we’ve had our fill of turkey and all the fixin’s, how about an overload of books? In the past couple of weeks about 6 boxes of books have been donated to the library. Many will be placed on the library shelves and many on the Friends of the Library “for sale” shelves. Christmas is coming and for 25 cents a book or 5 books for a dollar, you can’t beat it as gifts for the readers in your family!
Speaking of books as gifts, for the past two years, my family has been doing the “something I want, something I need, something to wear, something to read” list. This has narrowed down the list and helped them focus on the differences between the wants and needs at Christmas. It also has given them the opportunity to ask for “something to read” without looking like a book nerd or being “uncool”. (Guess where they are getting their “something to read” gifts from!)
The library will also be changing the Veteran book display to a Christmas book and movie display of the books available here in this library. Please feel free to check them out……literally! These books and movies are not only for looks on the glass case. So far, 28 Christmas titles are right here in this library for adult readers and more than 10 for the younger set. I repeat…so far. Please check them out! They are guaranteed to get you in the holiday spirit.
By the way, after you have done your Christmas “chopping”, please refrain from eating the tree decorations. You could get tinsel-itis!
Happy pre-Christmas Reading!
