Visit the Holiday Giving Tree in the Library Lobby!

Grab a tag, purchase the gift listed on the tag, and return the gift to the Circulation Desk by Dec. 30.

Or, scan the QR code on the back of the tag, which sends you to an Amazon gift list. Purchase a gift from the list, and it will be shipped directly to the Home of the Sparrow, a nonprofit organization that serves homeless women and children in McHenry County.

The American Association of University Women coordinates the giving tree program.
