It is the Season for Giving and the Elko County Library is once again displaying the Sugar Plum Tree. Organizations have provided names of children, elderly, and those with special needs, along with what type of gifts they are wishing for at Christmas, so that community members can provide gifts to those who may otherwise not get one at Christmas. There are still tags on the tree and the library would like to invite teh community members to stop by and take a name to help those who are less fortunate within the community. Pleas wrap and deliver gifts with name-tags the Elko County Library no later than December 21st at 5:00.
