On December 12, Teen2Teen held our now-annual bake                                                                Board
sale. It was a huge success, undoubtedly due mainly to all
the fantastic brownies. We also sold tons of other
desserts, including thumbprint cookies, cauldron cakes,
and even homemade hot chocolate mix (which, I’ll admit,
I didn’t know existed). Of course, we couldn’t have done it without the help of the Friends of the Library, so a big thank you to
them. All of the proceeds of the bake sale will be going towards a carnival that Teen2Teen is hosting this summer. If you, quite
regrettably, missed the bake sale, make sure to check it out next year; It’s a great way to buy last-minute holiday presents. For
yourself. Yum!
