Looking for Crafty People to Create Trees & Wreaths!


Are you one of those marvelous crafty people? Are you someone who is already counting down the days to Christmas? Do you enjoy supporting a good cause like the Friends of Porter Public Library? If you answered "Yes!" to any or all of those questions, consider picking up a miniature tree or 24-inch wreath at the library beginning October 15.

The artificial trees and wreaths are given out with no decorations. We are asking the borrowers to return fully-decorated trees and wreaths on or before Monday, Nov. 13, 2017 (borrowers donate the trimmings) as part of the Friends' holiday silent auction fundraiser.
