Friends of the Library group has filled the gift shop with Christmas items.
“We change out the items with each holiday,” said Neosho Newton County Library volunteer Jackie Kenny. “We even put items out that correlate with different seasons.”
According to Kenny, some items are donated while others are ordered through catalogs.
“We do a lot of gift things as well as houseware items,” Kenny said.
Money received in the gift shop goes back into the library.
“We use it to pay for things like the summer programs for the children,” said Kenny, “and also for the Christmas activities we try to plan every year.”
