Gifts from the Heart Returns to Anythink Libraries
Gift-Giving Program Mixes Creativity and Community
Anythink’s district-wide Gifts from the Heart program returns this December, providing opportunities for friends and neighbors to gather at their local Anythink to create amazing gifts for the special people in their lives. This annual gift-giving program offers all ages more ways to have fun and be creative at their library, as community members craft unique gifts such as T-shirt carryalls, leather-braided bracelets, picture frames, decorations and more.
