Oak Lawn Library volunteer Phyllis Guest says the branch has set up a gifts table just beyond checkout. The table is loaded with VHS tapes of classic movies — Fred & Ginger, Audrey Hepburn, Judy Garland and many more — all just $2.
“So if you know anyone who’s really into film, let them know,” Guest says.
An elderly friend of the library just gave up his home and sent the library these treasures.
Guest says other friends have given the library many cassette tapes — music and readings — and quite a few CDs as well.
The library’s open until 6 today and 10–6 Saturday to buy gifts and stocking stuffers in time for Christmas. Next week, the library’s open Wed.–Thu. Noon–8 and Fri.–Sat. 10–6. The gifts table will remain up until Jan. 2 and then they’ll put out all our remaining magazines plus tons of paperbacks, anything and everything for just 25 cents.
Money raised benefits the library with extra funds for new acquisitions and programming.
