Marion Community Angel Tree

With snow in the air (thankfully, not too much on the ground) it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and it's not even Thanksgiving yet! The holidays are looming with their sights, sounds, fragrances and flavors. We've been sharing gift ideas, exchanging family recipes and preparing for one of my personal favorite traditions -- our community's angel tree.

Please visit the library soon to select a special angel from our tree. It feels so good to fill a wish of a child in need at Christmas time. So simple. While you're making a list and checking it twice, consider a little angel. Wrapped gift items need to be returned to the library by December 12. Thank you for your generosity! It's one of the great things about our small community.

Doing some traveling this holiday season? Stuck in the car? Kids squabbling in the backseat? Been there, done that. Here's a simple and FREE solution --

Before traveling over the river and through the woods visit our OWWL2Go site, where you can amaze your family with your *technological skills and preparedness by creating an atmosphere of **peace and tranquility in your family vehicle.
At OWWL2Go you can checkout and download audiobooks and eBooks for listening and viewing on your personal computer. Audiobooks can also be transferred to compatible MP3 players or burned to CD.

*it's not difficult, but you'll get credit for being clever.

** typical results may vary, as we cannot guarantee peace and tranquility, but since it costs nothing, you have nothing to lose.
