T-Shirt Fundraiser for the Library with Between the Pines Design!

Good things happen when local businesses are willing to help the library out! Between the Pines is helping the SV Library with a FUNDRAISER for the SELCO Foundation! Check out the shirts available! https://betweenthepines.square.site/shop/26

All funds raised will go to the Spring Valley Public Library’s SELCO Foundation for the library to use on anything we need to benefit the library including programs, books, supplies and expenses. If you can’t / don’t want to order online, stop in the library and order directly with one of us. SO many colors of shirts, and lots of cute designs to choose from! We appreciate the generosity from Tara and Between the Pines Design and we thank all of you in advance for your purchases. ( I have samples of t-shirts here at the library for you to see sizes.) Shipping is available!
