Oh, I bet you didn't want to be reminded of the rapidly approaching holiday season, did you? Well, sorry!
I'm going to start the holiday rush by suggesting a few unusual, but library related, gift items:
For kids there's the Little Librarian play set,
Little Librarian is the first personal library kit made just for kids! It encourages reading and is powered by creativity and imagination, not batteries! Little Librarian provides book lovers with everything they need to transform their book collection into a library.
For an adult, you could purchase a gift certificate to the Library Restaurant in Portsmouth. They promote themselves as "The Best Steak House on the Seacoast."
How about a literature-related tee? Check out the offerings at Out of Print Clothing.
In addition to spreading the joy of reading through our tees, we acknowledge that many parts of the world don't have access to books at all. We are working to change that. For each shirt we sell, one book is donated to a community in need through our partner Books For Africa.
The next suggestion is a real stretch, since the library tie no longer exists--Clue, the mystery game. It's not the game you knew as a child, the library is gone (replaced by the "theater"?), but you may find it fun to see how the game has changed since the last time you played it. It would make a great family gift.
There's still a little time left if you want to create a handmade gift. We've got all sorts of art, crafts, and cookbooks you can look through for ideas, so stop by before it's too late...
