From over the Hill . . .
quick note and GREAT idea from Joan Lighthill for a simple and
fun gift idea. (And since you will
be at the Library Open House/Book Signing this Saturday, Dec.
3rd, between 5:00 - 7:00 pm, take a peek and see what you find):
Che'usa, Another thing I thought about for "local" Christmas
buying: The conference room at the library always has books for
sale. $1.00 for hardbacks and 25 cents for paperbacks. Most are
in good condition. So, if you have a friend or relative who reads
non-stop (like me) get him/her a bunch of books. Stack them and
tie with a big bow . . . the Library will benefit too!"
