Library Giving Tree at HMCPL

Be a Library Angel!  During the month of December, several of our libraries will feature a Library Giving Tree.

This tree will contain paper ornaments with donation requests from the library*. These are books that the library will catalog and put in their collection, so only new items are requested.  Specific titles that the library needs, as well as requests for favorite books will be listed. This is a great way to give back to the library!
