Less than a week remains for pre-ordering holiday poinsettias and jar mix gift items from the Friends of the Solon Library. Deadline for ordering is Tuesday, Nov. 21. The Friends will 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 website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
