Santa’s Secret Shop

Wednesday 12/14 from 3-5 pm,
Thursday 12/15 from 3-7 pm,
Saturday 12/17 from 10 am – 1 pm

The Cohocton Public Library is once again hosting Santa’s Secret Shop! This annual tradition is a chance for the kids in the community to “shop” for gifts for their families for the holidays.

As always, there is no charge for this event, “shopping lists” will be heading home with the kids, we ask that you llimit the number of family members that the kids shop for, and we will provide gift bags and packing help.

This program isn’t possible without the generosity of our neighbors and patrons so, if possible, please consider donating new or gently used items at the library. Each year the demand for items for teens and men are where we seem to be most in need.
