Giving Week 2019 — December 1-7
Giving Week is part of #GivingTuesday – a global giving movement fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is happening on 3 Dec 2019 this year.  Throughout Giving Week the library will offer opportunities everyone to make hand-crafted gifts and items to give during the holidays.  No registration is necessary.  Drop-ins are welcome!

Stay tuned for the project list!
