  • We have a Christmas luncheon together, paid from the volunteer money set aside for the ministry.  I had coasters made with a photo of the library on them and gave one to each volunteer on the staff. For the Sunday volunteers, a donation was made to a ministry in their name. 

  • I have filled gift bags with a Christmas mug and enough of my spiced tea mix to get them through the holidays, a vintage Christmas note pad I found on eBay, a fun ink pen, lip balm, and Ghirardelli chocolate peppermint bark!


  • I decorated the library with a 4' Chrismon tree as well as some other decorations. We have both an adult and children's section with all the Christmas books, DVDs and CDs.

    I put a poinsettia in church in honor of the library staff. I also make Lemon Yogurt Tea Bread and give a loaf to each staff member with a card thanking them for serving for the year.

  • We go out for lunch the first Monday of the month all year long and do not exchange gifts however we do decorate a small tree and tell people to take a small ornament with them. That way by end of month the tree is ready to go back in it;s box
