Festival of Trees

This is the third year we have the fun of having the Festival of Trees here at the library. This is a fund raiser for the Friends of the Library and it may be as anticipated as much as the book/bake sale. Various businesses and individuals make up trees to display at the library. Next to every tree is a canister where you can drop in some quarters (or any money amount) to vote for your favorite tree. At the end of the Festival of Trees (after Christmas) the Friends of the Library count up how much each tree earned and the winners are then given gift cards of some kind.

It is a great way to showcase your business. The creativity of each tree is always such a fun thing to see. Be sure to stop in and look over the amazing detail of each tree and don’t forget to vote for your favorite tree!

You can see all the trees and who they belong to in this facebook album. Here is a sampling of the the trees we have here today in no particular order.

Teen Council

On Monday, November 17th the Teen Council met at the library to put together a Christmas Tree for the Festival of Trees here at the library.

The Festival of Trees is put on by the Friends of the Library.  Various businesses and organizations decorate a tree to be displayed at the library.  People come in and vote – with a quarter – for their favorite tree.  The tree with the most money wins!  All money goes right back to the library.

Miss Alicia sent out an email asking the teens for some of their favorite books.  While the teens are great at sending in football picks (if you want to know more about that, be sure to email us and ask.  Weekly football picks are great fun!), they fell a little short on their favorite books.  No worries, they thought of plenty when they arrived at the library.

While munching on brownies and cookie bars (what is it with not eating the sides of the baked goods??? And weren’t Miss Alicia’s mint chocolate brownies delicious?) Teen Council 2014-15 012

and sipping hot chocolate or gulping various soda, the teens got to work.  They formed an assembly line of sorts to cut out, glue and glitter the copied book covers.

They also streamed para-cord, still a favorite craft, around the tree as well.

The tree is prominently displayed in the front window. Get your friends down to vote, teens!  You have some pretty tough competition!
