It's Christmas Time at the Library

There is so much happening this month that there is no way to put it all into a blog post. Please stop in to the library and find out all that is happening in your community. One thing I can tell you is Dec.19-23rd is open house. Take a break, come in and relax. Have something warm to drink, sit by the Christmas tree and either converse with a friend or read for a while. This really is a great place to be.
