1st Annual Holiday Online Secret Santa Extravaganza

I’d like to take a shot at arranging an online librarian Secret Santa. It’s been a rough year for the national library community as a whole and I’d like to end the year with some holiday cheer.

So, here’s the skinny:

  • Sign up between now and 11:59PM Saturday December 19th. (Form embedded below.)
  • You will receive your gift target’s information on December 20th.
  • Gifts should be received around December 25th.
  • $10 gift limit (Go over at your own discretion.)

I’ve set up a Google Documents form to collect information from interested individuals. With the advent of internet shopping, the least amount of information you need to share is an email address. (As a good librarian, I will not share any information with anyone but your gift giver. Plus, I will need to contact you to let you know who you are giving to.)

(Apparently, WordPress doesn’t like iFrames. Here’s the link to the live form while I find a workaround. Sorry about that!)

Let’s make this a rousing end of the year success! Be sure to pass the word on this event! I will be making a Facebook event and tweeting on it as the days go by (I haven’t thought of a clever hashtag yet).

Happy Holidays, whatever that holiday might be!

  1. Andy,

    Thank you for putting this event together! I agree with you, it has been a rough year for all of us in Libraryland.

    I hope that you get lots of participation. Can’t wait to find out who my Secret Santa will be 🙂

    Take care and Happy, Joy, Joy, Holidays to you too!


    • You can send presents via email addresses through certain vendors. I send music to my friends all the time using iTunes. I’d have to check it out, but I think Amazon and some of the other book retailers (like B&N and Borders) have online certificates you can send.

      We’ll figure this out!

  3. What a brilliant idea. Thanks kindly for setting this up.

    I am, of course, the dork who got so excited about signing up, I forgot to give you my e-mail address. You can glean it from this comment. 🙂
