If your kids are looking for a chance to buy mom and dad something special, the Springfield-Greene County Library is giving them that chance.
The Library’s Between Friends Gift Shop staff have created “stores” inside six library branches where kids can buy gifts for their parents that cost between 25 cents and 10 dollars.
Anyone under 18 years of age can shop in the store.
A library volunteer will help each child find gifts they feel are right for their parents or their relatives. The volunteer helps the child stay under budget, wrap gifts, and tag them.
According to the Library, the gifts include jewelry, mugs, toys, holiday ornaments, socks, slippers, wallets, watches, iPad cases, frames, and more.
