Annville Free Library Holiday Fundraiser

December 2016

Hello, Frosty here! I was summering in the cool air of the North Pole, but now it’s time to put on my old silk hat and begin dancing my way south to visit my friends Karen and Hocus Pocus. Santa and the Elves said to be sure and stop in the friendly town of Annville, Pennsylvania and not to miss a visit to the Annville Free Library. At the library, I met the wonderful librarians, Ms. Dee and Miss Cindy who asked me to spread the word about the Annville Free Library. They told me the Annville Free Library  is a place where everyone can find something of interest: books, audio books, e-books, DVD’s, computers with internet access, wifi, special interest groups and clubs, online classes, foreign language classes and so much more.

So while I was running around the streets of town encouraging all my new AFL friends to remember the library during the holiday season, the boys and girls told me how much the library means to them because there is always something happening there. Story time, crafts, games and special adventures are some of their
favorite programs. All of these activities and services are provided free to any card carrying friend of the
library.

Please help make it a wonderful holiday for the Annville Free Library and the community it serves. A gift to the AFL is a gift that makes merry many times over through the year.

2016 Annville Free Library Holiday Wish List :

Book, DVD Sponsor          $25

Games, Craft Sponsor     $50

Audio Book Sponsor        $75

Program Sponsor              $100+

I hope everyone receiving this letter will have a wonderful Holiday Season and will help the Annville Free
Library create another successful New Year serving the community.

My Annville reception was so warm that I have to head north again or I might melt, but I’ll be back again someday when the temperature drops and the snow falls.

See you soon,

Frsty
