DAVENPORT, IOWA (November 23, 2021) — Are you struggling with what to give your loved ones this holiday season? Whether you are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, graduation, spiritual holiday, or other events, deciding on a gift can be stressful! It may be easy to grab a bottle of wine to bring to a party or a lottery ticket for a stocking-stuffer, but did you know those gifts could be harmful to some individuals?

On Wednesday, December 1, 6:30PM, join Erin, a Prevention Specialist with the Center for Alcohol and Drug Services Inc, to learn about responsible gifting and celebrating with care not only during the holiday season but throughout the whole year. Erin will discuss age-appropriate gifts for youth and suitable ideas for events such as house warming parties, holiday festivities, and other celebrations.

This program is scheduled to be held in person at the Fairmount Library (3000 N Fairmount St) and virtually. To register for either, visit https://bit.ly/dpl-responsiblegifting101.

For in-person attendees, please observe social-distancing and follow local COVID-19 safety-recommendations. This program is subject to COVID-19 safety protocol updates. Masks are recommended.

This event is FREE and open to the public. For more information visit www.davenportlibrary.com or call the library at (563) 326-7832.
