November 21, 2018 – Gifts and Memorials

The Mellen Lions & Lioness Clubs have once again written to the North Pole and invited the Claus’s to visit.  Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus have let us know that they will be stopping at the Library on Saturday, December 8th from 1-3 PM.  Be sure to bring your camera and wish lists!

Each year our library receives gifts and memorials from community members, families and friends from near and far.  It is through these gifts and donations that we can add to our collection, provide special programming and services, as well as create new opportunities for our community at the library.  We are very grateful.
