Buy-A-Book for the Community Tree

The Casselton Public Library has once again initiated a Buy-a-Book for the Community Tree at our local library.  Community members will have a hassle free opportunity to give to a local non-profit where various gift tags have been labeled with assorted titles of books that the library would like to add to the circulation collection.  Community members are encouraged to stop into the library and browse the gift tags that are displayed on the tree, select those which you would like to buy for the library, attach a check or cash to the tag, drop it into the gift box, and then the library staff will make the purchases.  Book plates with the purchaser’s name will be placed on each donated item signifying that it was given during the 2015 Buy-a-Book program.  Remember, purchasing a book is also a special way to honor or remember someone and that will also be designated on the book plate.  Books may be bought anytime during normal operating hour which will include the Monday of Winter Wonderland of Lights so stop by that evening and take a look at the tree.  If you cannot make it to the library there is an option of sending a check directly to the library and specifying what age bracket of books you would like to purchase.

Christmas Cookie and Book Exchange

Holiday bakers, the first 10 people to sign up are invited to participate in the third annual:    Christmas Cookie and Book Exchange which will be held on Saturday, December 12 at 10:30am.   Join the fun by bringing 10 dozen of one type of your favorite home baked Christmas Cookie along with a gently used or once read book to the library.  Each participant will leave with a variety of different Christmas Cookies and will exchange their book for a different book that someone else has brought to share.  Anyone interested in taking part in this exchange is invited to contact the Casselton Public Library at 347-4861 ext. #13 or by e-mail at In order to ensure a variety of cookies please designate what you are planning to bring ahead of time so others can be informed and then duplicates will not occur.

Note:  Everyone will be contacted on December 8th to confirm how many people are participating, what cookies are being exchanged, and how many dozen cookies will need to be brought.

Food For Fines

During the month of November individual fines for overdue books will be waivered for anyone who brings in a non-perishable food item to be donated to our local food pantry.  Check your account at the circulation desk to see if you owe anything or have any overdue books still out.
