The Rockville Public Library will hold its 6th Annual Community Tree Festival from Friday, December 2nd to Friday, December 16th, with an Opening Reception on December 2nd from 4:30 – 7:00 pm. We will feature trees and wreaths decorated by local organizations, businesses, and town departments that will be part of a silent auction. The funds from this festival are used to enhance programming that we provide to our community.

This year we would like to focus on the importance of Children’s Literacy and ask that decorators use a children’s book to inspire their decorations. If you would like to decorate a tree for this year’s festival, please fill out and return this application by Wednesday, November 23rd. Trees cost $10 and wreaths cost $7, which can be picked up when you submit your application.
