I think there were a few more that I didn't get the ornaments back on - there were apparently 40 sold all together. Also, the library is planning on purchasing the remaining Betsy-Tacy books. The old copies had worn out and been discarded (and I don't think they had had the high school level books around in years, if they ever did), so the only thing relating to Betsy-Tacy in the library before we started last year's tree was a children's biography of the author. Glad to help fix that omission! :)
