I love this time of year — when I can be at home with a good book, coffee cup in hand and a warm furnace. However, like most people, I am at work and wondering how everything will get done. Planning for holiday gifts can be extremely stressful. However, your library can provide excellent gifts at a very reasonable price. Not only is the Friends of the Library book sale taking place with great buys on practically new books, we also sell t-shirts, hoodies, etc. All proceeds after cost go to the Dekalb Public Library. Shop local.
