Spring Flower Bulb Fundraiser by the Friends of HTFL

The Friends of HTFL are, once again, raising money for the Library. Don't miss the opportunity to beautify your garden with your purchase of flower bulbs through the Friends' online Spring Fundraiser.  Purchase the bulbs online and they will be shipped directly to your house.  All you need is the trowel!  

50% of the profits go to the Friends to help the Library purchase the "extras" such as televisions, audio equipment, Summer Reading Club programs for your enjoyment-I could go on and on.  

Click here for the link to the website to make your purchase today!  Thank you.
