Calling all kids! Do you have any gently used toys that you don't play with anymore? Please consider donating them to our Friends Club's annual Kid-to-Kid sale! Our volunteers collect donations of used toys to sell with all proceeds going to the youth department of the library. Donations are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated! Another great way to support this effort is to stop by the big toy sale at the library on Saturday, August 26 and pick up something fun at a great price :) Please contact Rachael (perryrac@yahoo.com) with any questions or to arrange for pick-up/drop-off of donations.
