Mallory Hewlett, Communications Manager at the Joliet Public Library, organized the Giving Tree.

“We host the Giving Trees every year during the holiday season at both locations,” said Hewlett. “Our Library is committed to partnering with other organizations in our area to provide supplies that promote learning and growth. It is also a great way to give back to our great community.”
