The Spirit of Christmas

Posted December 12, 2012 in Community Featured, Greene County

The best Christmas presents do not require batteries, don’t have a price tag, and can’t be found under any tree.  Instead of pretty paper and bows, they are wrapped with kindness.

The library receives Christmas gifts all year-round. These gifts are truly precious and come from the many volunteers who help us at the library in so many different ways. So in this season of giving, we would like to honor our library volunteers.

Happy holidays to the special volunteers who repair our chairs, help process new books and audiobooks, read to children at the elementary school, deliver books to the nursing home and homebound readers, help with the book sales, display their collections, make decorations for the children’s library, build wooden toys for the children, donate the Sunday newspaper every week, cut out pictures for the children’s crafts, donate books and give memorials, bake cookies, water and maintain the landscaping and flowers… just to mention just a few.

The list is too long to name each one. The gifts each one of you give — your time, talents, and thoughtfulness — are truly appreciated. By giving to the library, you give to our community.

A special thank you to the members of the Friday Study Club, who continue their annual tradition of decorating the library Christmas trees. The “Once Upon a Time” tree in the children’s department is adorned with brightly-colored children’s books to celebrate the joy and importance of learning to read. The ornaments on the “Happily Ever After” tree in the adult department are recycled from the pages of discarded library books. These decorations might inspire you to give an old book a new purpose.

These festive holiday trees are here for you to enjoy on your visits to the library in December.  The library will be closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, so plan ahead to stock up on books and movies, or cookbooks and board games for your family celebrations.

The staff, trustees, and Friends of the Jefferson Public Library wish you and your family a truly wondrous Christmas season.
