Christmas Wishes

Christmas Party 2009 - Tuesday December 22
2:00 PM

Please join us!
Holiday Closure: Please note the library will be closed December 24th, 25th, 31st & January 1st

This year we are trying something new, we asked the kids to write down what they wanted for Christmas. Below is a list of the Christmas Wishes of kids who regularly come to the library and participate in our programs. We are hoping to find sponsors to help purchase or bring all of these gifts.
To help us keep track of gifts that are already accounted for, please send us a brief email (akumallibrary@gmail.com) if you are bringing any gifts. That way we can remove it from the list, to avoid duplicates.
-->Not coming to Akumal but want to help us get these gifts? You can make a donation, just let us know it's for Christmas gifts and we'll use the funds for that purpose.

Thank you for helping make these kids' wishes come true!
