Support sustainable gifting by donating to the Holiday Gift Nook event.
Arlington Public Library is seeking donations from the public for its inaugural Holiday Gift Nook event. If you have small, giftable items, please visit any of our seven library locations and drop them off at our Gift Nook donation boxes, located near the entrances. The deadline for donations is Nov. 2, 2022.
How to donate:
- Look for the large, white donation box at all library locations during the donation period.
- The deadline for donations is Nov. 2, 2022.
We are accepting:
- Items should be smaller than a breadbox. Examples include small toys, jewelry, games or decorative items.
