Heart of America Library News
There are many indications of the Holiday Spirit in our community and the Heart of America Library is getting ready, too! The Mitten Tree is up! We are accepting donations for new or gently used winter hats or gloves. These are then given to schools for distribution to children needing those items. This is year 36 for this project at the Heart of America Library.
We have added lots of good reading again this week.
