The library has holiday gift bags filled with books for all the people on your Christmas list. Our volunteers have sorted and packaged bags of gently used books to make ready to give gifts. Books are sorted by categories such as history, gardening and mystery. We also have children's bags that are sorted into age appropriate bundles. If a gift bag doesn't work, how about a street sign? We are selling the remaining Zelie and Harmony Borough signs for a buy one get one price of $20.00. Get one before they are all gone. For the cooks on your list you can also select a copy of Dewey Decimal Dishes, our library cookbook that is filled with great recipes from local cooks and bakers. The cookbook is $5.00. It is easy to ship to out of town recipients.
