HOLLEY – The Holley Community Free Library has offered numerous opportunities recently for residents to give back to their community.  Library Director Sandra Shaw says the past few months have been busy.

On Oct. 28, more than 35 people came to the library to paint rocks for soliders serving in Kuwait. Small rocks were colorfully painted to brighten the lives of service men and women serving in Kuwait. The library provided materials and sent finished rocks to the troops.

Santa and Mrs. Claus visited the library on Dec. 2.

The Food for Fines program collected two boxes of food for the Community Center in November, and nearly 200 people attended the annual Community Christmas Party on Dec. 2.  The event coincided with this year’s tree lighting and holiday parade celebration in the village. The library event featured carols, snacks, movies and a visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

On Dec. 9, Assemblyman Steve Hawley and more than 30 people came to the library to write Christmas cards for veterans. The library provided a selection of cards from which to choose and participants wrote messages of thanks as well as holiday wishes for local veterans. The cards were delivered to the VA Hospital in Batavia.

Assemblyman Steve Hawley joined Library Director Sandra Shaw and other patrons in writing Christmas cards.
