Are you in need of some shopping therapy after the election? We have an awesome experience just waiting for you! Grab the kids, grandma, and your friends, and make your way to the Spillville Library Holiday fundraiser Sunday, November 20 from 1 to 4:30. Shop and support local businesses and your Spillville Public Library at the same time! The event is free, with a percentage of the profits donated to the library. When you are ready to take a break, grab some homemade mouth-watering refreshments! Refreshments available for purchase will include Czech kolaches, cookies, bars, coffee and lemonade.
The Community Room and basement will be full this year with a great variety of crafters and vendors. They include:
- Pampered Chef
- Lula Roe
- Young Living
- Joyce Meyer Photography
- Jamberry Nails
- Stanley Fuller Brush
- Designs by Georgia
- Tonya Balik Creations
- Pat Weigel’s Mittens
- Paparazzi Jewelry

- Julie Smith’s Vinyl Crafts
- Leslie Becthold’s fused glass art and sewn/quilt items.
At Joyce Meyer Photography, we have had lots of new arrivals, from a 20x30 metal of a blue cloudy sunrise reflection on a lake, to new napkin holders and tissue boxes with area photos on tiles. An old favorite, the award-winning "Conover Road" is back on canvas, along with 30 varieties of notecards of local scenes done on watercolor paper! Having been recently published on billboards, websites, and magazines, we are happy to take the time to give back to our community at this fundraiser. We hope you come out to support this wonderful event too.
As busy as we are these days, wouldn’t it be nice to have some time to unwind after dropping off the kids at school, or on your way to and from work? How about when you are waiting at the doctor or dentist's offices or in line at the pharmacy? You can help the library from these places too by utilizing their online access to ebooks, audio books, and videos right on your device. The library will be open during the holiday event to help you set up an account on your devices. Feel free to bring your tablet, cell phone with internet, or laptop to get one-on-one easy training on how to check out tons of books from the State Library of Iowa. By setting up an account today through the Spillville Library, you will help the library with funding. It’s easy and fast way to help and be able to enjoy an audio book on the way to work and back.
The Spillville Library truly appreciates your support. Mark your calendar for the next free holiday event. The Spillville Library Holiday P.J. party with Santa will be on December 13 starting at 6:30 p.m. (Snow date is December 15.) Joyce Meyer Photography will be donating time to take photos of your little ones with Santa. If given your email address, the photos will be sent to you hopefully as early as the next day for your holiday cards.
Mark your calendar for November 20th! Remember to shop local this holiday season and invest in the future of your small Iowa communities!
