Holiday Basket/Book Sale
Just before each holiday gift giving season, the Friends provide theme gift baskets with books and related items, as well as book collections, autographed editions, classic old books, recently copyrighted newer used books and comic books. All of the books are donated by the public throughout the year, while the Friends volunteers add related items, assemble and gift wrap the baskets. We have something for everyone! The 2017 sale began Saturday, November 11, in conjunction with the annual Germantown Christmas Festival.
Some of the themes for the baskets are:
|Bowling||Wild Animals||Star Wars||Cooking/baking|
|Mysteries||Children’s crafts||Children’s science||Romance stories|
The 2017 Holiday Basket/Book Sale began in conjunction with the Germantown Village Christmas Parade and tree lighting ceremony. Over 100 baskets, each gift wrapped, cover dozens of adult and children’s themes. The sale continues until January 1st.
