The Perfect Holiday Gifts Exist!
by Brianne Anderson
I don’t know about you, but every year around this time my mind mentally freezes. The holiday season is coming and all of a sudden, I have no idea what my nieces or nephews are into right now, and do my in-laws really need/want another gift card? Gift giving around the holidays is our chance to show those we love how much we appreciate them and value them in our lives, but that also comes with the stress of trying to please everyone.
Although it might not be the first place that comes to mind, your local library is an amazing resource when those gift-giving panic sessions start. Our staff is reading and preparing all year for the chance to talk to you about all kinds of book recommendations. Need something for a new parent? We can suggest a bunch of great books for both them and their little one. How about your best friend who already has everything? We’ve got ideas for you!
We all know that books are the best gifts to give, but if you really want something different, come see us for those ideas, too. Did you know we have a ton of magazines? If you are thinking of giving a subscription, come check out our supply to see which ones your recipients might be interested in or are directed at the right age level.
Have a gamer on your list? Have a look through out Roleplaying Game kits. We have bins available with popular starter and advanced sets for RPG games like Dungeons & Dragons, Call of Cthulhu, Tails of Equestria and more! These kits come with everything you need to sit down for an afternoon of adventure-filled gaming and are perfect to look at if you aren’t sure where to start.
Need more budget-conscious options? Check out the library’s Literary Grounds book store. These gently-used books often look brand new and come at a super cheap price tag. You can find everything including children’s books, cookbooks, history, fiction, and more! Bonus is all proceeds go directly back to our APL Friends Foundation to support library initiatives and programming.
No matter who you are searching for, visit, call or chat with us and I guarantee you will leave with more ideas than you need for everyone on your list.
