Keeping Community Traditions at the Meekins: Share and Shop!
For five years in a row, the Meekins Library in Williamsburg has been the place to find a gift for someone special, donate a coat or sweater to keep someone warm, add some hearty food items to the Hilltown Pantry and Northampton Survival Center, and bring a treat for our furry friends at the Dakin Animal Shelter. Join us again this year for these gifting and giving opportunities.
The seasonal Meekins Market is back, celebrating its fifth anniversary!
The now traditional Meekins Market returns in late November through December. Help make the Meekins' very own special in-house tag sale a joyful success once again.
Look for the bright red and green signs as you enter the Library. Children and adults will find lots of small (and not so small) inexpensive gifts to give friends and loved ones. Kids, don't know what to give your parents or grandparents? Grandparents, want something for the grandkids? Looking for an idea for your best friend, but your budget is limited? Find it at Meekins Market. Most items are between 25 cents and 10 dollars. Find stuffed animals, decorative objects, household items, jewelry, office supplies, holiday items and, of course, books! Perfect presents for family and friends--all lovingly donated to the Meekins Market. Think of it as the newest trend in recycling. Fun stuff at a good deal!
The Library is collecting warm clothes and food good for the Hilltown Pantry and the Northampton Survival Center. We are also collecting blankets, toys and food for our animal neighbors, who are looking for new homes, now living at the Dakin Animal Shelter. Help Meekins staff, volunteers and friends of the Meekins to fill the big table in the Helen Bacon Rotunda to the brim. Drop off your donations soon. Let's keep everybody warm and fed!
"Move it For Meekins" long-sleeve and short-sleeve T-shirts are always a big hit. They come in kids and adult sizes and in a range of colors. They feature Sadie, the late Library cat who won the hearts of all Meekins visitors. The Friends of the Williamsburg Libraries have them available for $20 for long-sleeve shirts and $15 for short-sleeve shirts.
Don't forget to bring something for the Hilltown Pantry, Northampton Survival Center, and Dakin Animal Shelter!
Don't forget to get and give the gift that keeps giving--a library card. It's free and lasts a lifetime and is good for books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, electronic books, serves as a passport to all library programs, and so much more.
