Between the Christmas Light Parade and the Holiday Business Open House, Marshall has officially ushered in the holiday season and with it means it is time to start thinking about the perfect gifts for the special someone(s) in your life! OK now breath… I’m not saying this to scare you, but as a gentle reminder so you aren’t caught off guard on December 24th. (You know Santa can’t do it all himself!) And just because we don’t sell anything here at the Marshall District Library doesn’t mean we can’t help you pick out the perfect gift.
If you ask me, books make a great gift! I know, I know… Spoken like a librarian, but it’s true. Books show the person that you know them well and put extra effort into their gift by making it about them! You are probably thinking to yourself now though, “Why am I still reading this? It’s not like I can give a library book…”
Well you are right, BUT you can ask anyone of us library staff members for suggestions. We spend all year looking at books and finding the next great novel for all ages and we love to help people find the perfect book to read. So why wouldn’t we like to help you find the perfect book that is also the perfect gift? You can always call, stop by, Facebook, Tweet, blog or email us your questions… We really are here to help!
Of course if you are looking for the economical present you can always give the gift of telling your friend about your friendly local library. In addition to books, we also have computers, newspapers, magazines, programs and a play area (for kids under the age of 10) that are all free to the public!
– Happy Holidays and Good Luck from all of us at MDL
