Homemade holiday gift programs

Homemade holiday gift programs

The holiday season is upon us and the James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., may help your children come up with the perfect homemade holiday gifts.

Registration begins Dec. 2 for winter gift-making programs.

Everyone loves to receive a homemade gift made from the loving hands of a child. Children are encouraged to make two gifts. One they can take home and give away to a family member or friend, and one will go into a gift bag at the library that will be given away in the community. Programs include:
