Holiday Adopt a Books are Here! Looking for a unique present for that someone special? Adopt a book at the library! Here’s how it works: Select a book from those available or suggest a book to the librarian. After you pay the library for the book we’ll put a special adoption label in and check the book out to your special someone. When the person has read the book, return it for others to enjoy – both the book and your generosity. Books may be adopted for people, pets, entities, the library, almost anyone.
The Peacham Jigsaw Puzzles will be on display in the Gilmore Gallery through December. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped to put together 13 different puzzles.
