Holiday Greetings from the Friends of the Library
The Holiday Book-Buying Season is already here and the Adams County Library System Friends of the Library offers two wonderful opportunities to find just-the-right gifts for family and friends (and maybe a little something for you!).
FOL will again participate in the Gettysburg High School Holiday Fair on Saturday, December 14 from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Gettysburg High School on The Harrisburg Road with plenty of free, available parking.
A special selection of new and gently-used Holiday-themed Children's Books and cook, hobby and craft books have been gathered from the Library Book Store for your shopping pleasure. Prices are "up-to-you" but a donation is requested. FOL volunteers have participated in this event for the past several years and enjoy being with the students and their friends (all potential Library users) as well as being part of this very successful Community endeavor.
And, as always at this very special Season, The Library Book Store is well-stocked and waiting for customers to view the Store in its Holiday best. Shoppers will find bargains in colorful Children's books, Holiday fiction, craft, hobby and cookbooks to suit everyone's interests and tastes and a wonderful collection of Coffee Table books. There are stocking stuffers for every stocking!
For those of you who may not know, or have forgotten, our Store is located on the lower level of the Library and is open seven days and three evenings each week. By becoming a member of FOL you are entitled to a 20% discount on all your purchases. Memberships, Book Store and Used Book Sale profits all combine to complete our annual pledge of $60,000 to the Adams County Library System.
Our merchandize comes to both the Book Store and the Holiday Fair activity through the generous donations from the community. All items are sorted and priced by volunteers and sent "upstairs" to be sold in the Store or packed for the summer Book Sale. (Watch for information on the Summer Used Book Sale for it will be in a different location this year due to the Middle-School building operation).
Please join us a either the Holiday Fair or come into the Book Store and check out all we have to offer you this special Season.
