Hand-crafted gifts available to benefit Friends of HTFL

 It’s all over the news how terrible libraries are doing right now so our local Friends of the HTFL group is working hard to come up with creative ways to further help the library. We have updated our display case area! Previously displaying “Attic Treasures”, the case is now filled with hand crafted specialties created by local artists and independent craftspeople.

Now we’re able to help out local artists trying to get their work out to a broader audience while all the profits go to the library. There is a range of items available – from jewelry to photographs, purses to baby blankets - and the case will be updated regularly so if you see something you enjoy, pick it up!

If you’re a local artist and would like the opportunity to show your wares, please contact


And if you’re looking for a great gift now – stop by the library!!
