The Holiday Store

Where Kids Love to Shop!

Shopping for families, friends and teachers is affordable and fun at the Library's annual Holiday Store, opening on Saturday, December 3. Kids through age 18 can shop at the "stores" for gifts priced from 25 cents to $6.  Volunteers will help young children shop, buy and wrap their gifts.

Double your fun that day at the Holiday Open Houses at the libraries, too, featuring games, crafts, treats and music for the whole family.
