Holiday Gift Giving

Don't know what to get a certain person on your gift list?  Do they love books but they can't store another one in their house?  Why not donate money for a book in their honor? 
 
Through our gift giving program, we will choose a book as individual as that person and place a book plate in the front of the material honoring them-whether they like biographies, or a special craft or hobby, or listening to audiobooks, we can find something they will like.  And, you are helping out the library at the same time!
