December Library Activities

The Friends of the Library held their annual Christmas Bake Sale on December 13.  There were many, many delicious baked items as well as time to visit with friends over a cup of coffee and roll.  Approximately 100 people attended the morning event with nearly $800 in sales.  Thank you to all those who baked items and also for purchasing items to help the Friends of the Library.

Children made Christmas tree ornaments for our tree in the Library.  The ornaments were made with  folded cupcake/muffin papers to look like a tree and then decorated with bling!  002
