@ Your Library

Hometown Holiday Basket Raffle: Drawing will be held December 20, 2019.
We are always delighted to display the colorful and lovely Hometown Holiday Basket at CFL - but we are also happy to see it go to a good home, as all the proceeds from the raffle benefit the library (which benefits our patrons)!
All of the items in the basket (crafted by Linda Buchanan) are local. They include a McCarthy’s cookbook, 2 Canton mugs, St. Lawrence Valley Roasters coffee, Wild Irish Rose Farm soaps, and more.
