Our 2017 Holiday Wish List is Available!

Our holiday gift wish list is out!


Last year, we put out a wish list of items we need, but couldn’t afford to buy. It was a huge success last year, and we thank you all for your generosity!

We are doing it again this year, but the list looks a little different than it did last year.

Based on community needs surveys and our budget, we’re asking for some unusual things as well as regular materials like books.

Libraries of Things are one of the newest things libraries across the country are offering their community members. We started last year with prom dresses and our seed library, and we’re growing!

This year, we’d like to offer:

Two Hiking Kits 

  • backpack, water bottle, and an Adirondack trail map for each

Two Yoga Kits

  • yoga mat, blocks, and DVD

One Sewing Kit

  • thread, needles, etc.

One Embroidery Kit

  • needles, thread, a book, embroidery hoop

One Indoor Gardening Kit

  • seeds from our seed library, a book on indoor gardening, soil, and a trowel

In addition to our library of things, we’re expanding our collections based on community feedback. We are asking for science fiction, historical fiction, and language learning materials.  The library is also in desperate need of replacing some of its well-loved classics like the Nancy Drew series. Finally, you will see books with diverse characters and cultures on our list as well.

Finally, the boring stuff. We could really use some office supplies so we can focus on putting the money in our small budget towards programs.
