Wishing Tree

Add your hope for this holiday season to our Holiday Wishing Tree

  • To celebrate the spirit of the season this year, we are creating and decorating a baker's twine tree across from the Check Out Desk.
  • Patrons of all ages are invited to add their wish for the holidays to it. Simply select one of the eight paper ornaments, write down your hope for this holiday season and leave it with a staff member.
  • Staff members will then add your ornament to the tree. Wishes can be as general as "World Peace" or as personal as "Everyone makes it home safely for the holidays."

So when you stop by the library to check out a book, audio CD or DVD this December, be sure to help us decorate the library with warm holiday wishes!
