Winter Wish List

Here are some items the library needs for projects with the kids:

-Colored pencils
-Scotch tape
-Colored tape or duct tape with designs for art/craft projects
-Washable tempera paints (large/liter size bottles are good)
-White glue (large bottles are good)
-Washable markers
-Durable pencil sharpeners (metal ones are better than plastic)
-Child size scissors with blunt tips
-String/thread for making necklaces

-Gently used, light weight clothing for our fundraiser bazaars:
Any infant or child's clothing is a big hit. Also smaller size adult clothing (size S, M or L--
XL and bigger don't sell well). Shoes, athletic gear (cleats, shin guards, ballet shoes/clothes), jeans. Nothing heavier than sweatshirt or light fleece weight jackets or pants.

Holiday Wish List: Updated 12/8/15

Every holiday season, Hekab Be puts on a HUGE holiday party and invites the townspeople to come and celebrate. And every year, we have somewhere over 100 people attend, and no child leaves empty-handed!
Please help us make sure we can be successful yet again this year. Regular library patrons who are children are asked what they would like from Santa (yes, we really do have a Santa come each year).
Here is their list:

--Monster High doll (3)
-- Frozen doll (Elsa) (4)
--Mermaid doll
--Children's paint/art set
--Imaginex dinosaur
--Toy train set
--Hotwheels cars/track (3)
--Remote control car (2)
--Mini speaker set to connect to phone or mp3 player (4)
--Batman & Robin action figures
--Iron man & Flash action figures
--Spiderman action figure
_-Marvel super heroes action figures set
--Soccer ball (5)
--Clothing for 4 year old boy 
--Makeup kit (2)

We also need smaller gifts to give to other children, such as: stuffed animals, beading kits, puzzles, drawing sets (coloring book w/markers or crayons), really anything you think a child would love, we'll find a home for it!
