Holiday Tea returns

The Friends of the Orcas Library is happy to announce the return of the Holiday Tea on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 1-4 p.m. at the Orcas Island Public Library.

This annual event is a “Thank You” to the community for supporting FOIL through donations and attending annual book sale events, which help raise funds for the library. Coffee, tea and punch will be served along with cookies, tea sandwiches and other goodies. There will be activities for the children and live music for your enjoyment. If people in the community wish to donate cookies they can bring them to the library on Dec. 2 or in the morning on the day of the Holiday Tea. During the celebration, FOIL will present the library with a presentation check in the amount of $21,750, meeting the library’s grant request for 2023.
