Christmas Shopping
Don’t forget that the library has a books-for-sale cart at the Yuba Gallery (next to the Yuba Theatre), whenever the Gallery is open. Pick out the books you want, and leave whatever donation you would like.

Book Share & Review Group
The group will meet again (and for the final time in 2016) on Tuesday, December 20, 1:00 PM at the library. Perhaps people will share some of their favorite holiday season books. Of course, anyone is welcome to share whatever books they have been reading lately. So, take a break from the turmoil of the season, and come see what books people are recommending. Everyone is welcome!
