Give the Gift of Books to Your Library

Tuesday, November 23rd, 2010

People who love books and giving books as gifts can spread cheer further this year by giving a children’s book to the Springfield-Greene County Library District with a donation to the library’s Holiday Book Trees and Wreaths.

From November 27-December 23, each branch of the Springfield-Greene County Library District will display a tree or wreath decorated with ornaments depicting books that are on the library district’s wish list.

When a person donates the $5, $10, $15 or $20 for a specific title, that book will be added to the district’s circulating collection for any child to check out and enjoy. The donor’s name will then be added to the ornament and placed back on the tree or wreath to inspire others.

For details, call Library Foundation Director Regina Greer Cooper at 417.883.5366.
