Spring Store 2021

This year we’re trying something new – a holiday store of limited-edition items for library enthusiasts! To support our local makers we’ve sourced many of these items from inside TADL’s service district – so your purchases will not only help support library programs and services, it will support our community as well!

Gift Baskets

If you have a friend who loves to read we have the perfect gift! This beautifully wrapped basket includes: one of our popular canvas reading totes, one of our special-edition library candles by Traverse City Candle Co., and one of our NEW Read-Between-the-Wines tumblers by Custom Stems. It’s a ready-to-give gift that keeps on giving!

$60 each (A $75 value!)


These beautiful mugs (made for us by Clay Maas) come in beachy washes of blues and beiges. Based on a note in the suggestion box requesting a small mug, we’re offering them in two sizes: small and regular. (Since these are handcrafted items we have a limited quantity available!)

Small Mug – Approximately 6 oz – $15

Regular Mug – Approximately 11 oz – $20 (SOLD OUT)


These lovely candles (by Traverse City Candle Company) are a special library/book-scent made just for us! Hand-poured 100% soy wax in a reusable glass jar. Check out a stack of books, settle into an afghan, and let these candles take your hygge to the next level.

Candles – $24 each

3D Bookmark

We designed these bookmarks in-house and created prototypes on our 3D printers – now they’re ready to rock a reader’s world! Printed with a sturdy filament, each bookmark features a tadl.org cutout to remind you of your favorite website and a flashy pair of glasses that stick out above the top of the book.

3D black bookmark – Horn-rim Glasses – $5

3D black bookmark – Round Glasses – $5

If you have a preference please specify it in the Paypal notes.
