Holiday Gift Drive

November 20th - December 19th


The library is partnering with the Reason to Give foundation to host a Holiday Gift Drive. This drive will provide donated gifts to families in need for the holidays. This will be the 9th annual drive for Reason to Give, and 1st year for the library.

Visit the library to check out the Giving Tree display. Ornaments on the tree feature the names, ages, and interests of kids in need. Take an ornament home with you to help you pick out the perfect gift. Bring your wrapped gift and ornament back to the library by December 19th in order to make sure the kid's will be able to open their present on Christmas morning.

After the holidays, visit the Reason to Give website: to see how your gift made a difference!
