Wishlist April 2012

Here are some things the library needs these days:

--New games and puzzles:
Especially well loved by the kids are the extra large piece floor puzzles, we could use a few more! Also, smaller puzzles for young kids (30 pieces or less) and 100 piece puzzles.

-Games we'd love to have: chess, checkers, chinese checkers, connect 4, mastermind, memory, mousetrap, candyland, hi-ho cherry-o, chutes & ladders, other games that are either in Spanish or don't require words.  Games we don't need (already have them): scrabble, monopoly, pictionary, guess who.

-most school supplies
-printer cartridges: Kodak 10B & 10C, HP 21 & 22
-liquid white glue (like elmer's), large bottles are great
-poster board
-tissue paper
-1/2 page size notebooks (we have full page size ones, but need smaller ones for the younger kids)
-letter size sheets for laminating machine

 We are also in need of gently used clothing for our fundraising clothing bazaars. Things that sell well are light-to-medium weight clothing for babies, children, teens and small adults sizes (XS, S or M-- anything larger is generally too big for locals). Think summer or spring clothes. Sneakers, sandals, & flip-flops are also popular items. Please don't feel the need to go out and buy new clothes, pick stuff up at your local thrift store if you must, or canvas your neighbors for their used clothes-- help recycle clothing and help Hekab Be!
