Decorations for the Guild Christmas Tree at the Huntsville Main Library

Festival of Trees
During the month of December, the Main Library (915 Monroe Street SW Huntsville) will have the annual Festival of Trees. We will be decorating our annual Christmas tree. We need to select a theme and make some ornaments. We do have some items from previous years. Contact the guild with your ideas. We can set up our tree between November 30 and December 4. We’ll choose a date and time when we know who wants to help.
