Gifts from the Library


It's the time of year when we show those we care about how much we appreciate them with gifts. In the spirit of the movement to give experiences rather than things, you can find lots of great gifts at the library. Here are a few to consider:


Gifts for a significant other

Plan a romantic night at home without spending a lot of money. How you say? Let the library help!


Gifts for kids

The best gift you can give any child is the gift of your time.


Gifts for teens

Teens are a tricky bunch to buy for, so why not give them a great library experience instead!


Gifts for family

Have a family member who's impossible to buy for? Don't spend money on something they don't want, instead give them a gift that lets them know how much you value them. 

  • Master the art of high altitude baking to wow your family with perfectly crafted breads, cookies and cakes.
  • Discovery your family history with help from the library's genealogy resources, then share it with your loved ones.
  • Have a memorable family adventure at a local museum or attraction for free with an Exploration Pass.

Gifts for anyone

Need a gift for a neighbor, teacher or other VIP in your life? Let the library help. 


Gifts for someone with a memory issue

The library even has resources for when you visit someone with dementia.

  • Check out a Care Giver Kit for activities you and your loved one can enjoy together.
  • Take a tour of our Virtual Art Gallery to view the work of local artists from the comfort of your home.

Gifts for yourself!

Don't forget to put yourself on your gift-giving list. The library offers plenty of ways for you to treat yourself!
