Less than two weeks remain for pre-ordering your holiday poinsettias and jar mix gift items from the Friends of the Solon Library. Deadline for ordering is Nov. 21. The Friends once again have poinsettias from Joyce’s Greenhouse in North Liberty. Only a very small number of cash and carry will be ordered, so don’t delay. Order forms are available at the library, on the library website, or by emailing email@example.com .
The annual holiday sale will be the first weekend in December. Pick up for pre-ordered items will be during the sale. There will be an assortment of books and holiday items as well. Santa will be appearing on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10-11 a.m., so bring the kids or grandkids and your cameras for some candid shots as your child has a little one-on-one visit with Santa.
The official unveiling of the new Toni Russo “Of Time and Place” fundraising poster for the Friends will take place at the holiday sale event. Framed posters are currently on display at the library, Solon State Bank and Bridge Community Bank. Cost is $10 for unframed posters, with discounts for multiple orders, or $25 for framed posters. Early orders may be placed by emailing SolonLibrFriends@aol.com  or call Sue at 319-624-2632.
