Home shopping comes to the library

Building business, community

Within the first 45 minutes, the Home Party Expo had attracted more than 40 library patrons who sniffed candles, admired cosmetics, browsed housewares, popped Tupperware lids and tried out Miche handbags with changeable “skins” and handles.

Though mostly women were visitors, several men came, too.

“I was getting some Christmas present ideas,” an unidentified man said as he hastily exited the room. “There’s too many womenfolk in there for me, though.”

Attendance, which included regular library patrons who stopped by out of curiosity and people who went to the library for the expo, made Milcarek optimistic.

“Hopefully, we can go bigger and better, get more representatives and maybe move it to the Community Center,” she said. “We want to show the library is involved with our community and with our local businesses.”
