Wish tree: give a gift to your library & community

2019 Wish Tree

As you complete your holiday shopping, why not consider giving a gift to your community by shopping for the Library’s wish tree?

Each year, the library requests books, media, and programming equipment. Interested in purchasing something from the list? Please contact the library (library@marshalllyonlibrary.org; 507-537-7003 or stop by the Marshall Library.)

This list will be updated periodically. Please be aware that gifts for the wish tree are not tax deductible.
