Christmas in July at the Bookshelf! The first two weeks in July the Bookshelf will be offering an extraordinary selection of Christmas craft and decorating books from Southern Living, Mary Engelbreit, and many other noted craft sources. You’ll find inspiration for gifts and décor in these beautiful books filled with patterns and ideas for crafts, needlework, and sewing. We’ll be continuously re-stocking the shelves so check in several times for new selections.
Remember that the library welcomes donations of gently read books and magazines. Those that the library doesn’t need come to the Bookshelf, with all the proceeds benefiting the library. Don’t forget to visit the “back room” of the Bookshelf for newly stocked non-fiction and magazines.
Bookshelf hours are from 10:30-5:00 on weekdays and from noon-2:00 on Saturdays.
