Bluffton Public Library

On the 5th day of Bluffton Christmas...

I purchased a book for the Bluffton Public Library in the name of someon on my Christmas list

In the spirit of this year’s Blaze of Lights, the Icon offers viewers a daily local gift idea based upon the 12 Days of Christmas theme. There’s no need to shop out of town or on the internet for Christmas gifts this year.

On the fifth day of Christmas I shopped at...

Bluffton Public Library, 145 S. Main St.
For the person who really has everything, the public library has its own book wish list.
