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 byDecember 12. Thank you for your generosity! It's one of the great things about our small community.
