Calling all Carlisle kids! Do you have a special collection that you would like to share with your friends and the other patrons of the library? Thanks to the Friends of the Gleason Public Library, we now own a large display case that we want YOU to use.
Sign up at the Children's desk to fill the case with your special treasures for two weeks. After two weeks, your display comes down and the next one goes up.
Our current exhibit:
Finn Granfield's Magnets
So what do you collect? Your display can be anything you want - Pokemon cards, special toys, something you have made, artwork, coins, stamps, memories from a trip - it's entirely up to you. Call the library at 978-369-4898 if you have any questions. Start getting that collection together, and stop by the Children's desk to make your reservation.
