We all are trying to make ends meet these days, and during the Holidays that can be even more of a struggle!  So, what could be better than saving money by handcrafting your gifts, and decorations, and cooking home-made delicious dishes!  Everyone enjoys the giving and the receiving that happens this time of year, but there is something special about getting a gift that was made by the hands that gave it.  It is more personal and becomes a keepsake you will always cherish.

You will be glad to know that the Harris County Library system has lots of books to help you do just that.  From décor, and crafting, to cooking there is something for everyone!  Take a look below & enjoy!
