Give new books to the Pine Library this Christmas, or buy used volumes, including some collector editions, from the Payson Library.

Pine Library “Tree of Giving”

You can give a gift to the whole Pine-Strawberry community in 2012 by purchasing a book for the Isabelle Hunt Memorial Public Library “Tree of Giving” fund-raiser.  The library’s Christmas tree is up and ready for residents and visitors to select the book (located on ornament).

The library staff wants to buy new titles for children such as Carl Hiaasen’s “Chomp” and new titles for adults such as “Phantom” by Ted Bell and “Dorchester Terrace” by Anne Perry.

When the books arrive they will place bookplates inside noting the donor’s gift. Come in to the Pine library and choose from its list of books and DVDs to be published in 2012. All donations are tax-deductible. Any questions please contact the library at (928) 476-3678.
