The Nora Sparks Warren Memorial Library in PV still has more “angels” on the Christmas tree.

Each one represents a couple of holiday gifts valued at $15 each for children in need.

Gift suggestions for a boy or girl will be on the back of most “angels.”

Anyone interested in helping should avoid donating clothes, DVD's, CD's or used toys.

New and “gently used” children's books and stuffed animals will be accepted at the library.

If unable to spend $30 on each child, donors are asked to provide a new toy or cash donation.

All gifts purchased for the Angel Tree should have the unwrapped presents returned, along with a large or extra large gift bag, to the library by Dec. 2.
