"Papermaking" will be held on Sunday, December 7th at 2:00 pm in the Storytime Room at the Library. At this special event, children will discover paper's past by learning where paper comes from and exploring the history of papermaking. They'll create their own handmade paper and make a greeting card from the paper they've made.


Rainbow Puppets will re-enact the classic story of a beloved red-nosed reindeer on Wednesday, December 10th at 4:00 pm in the Community Room at the Library. This is a free, non-ticketed event for children.

Sock Snowmen will be held on Thursday, December 18th at 4:00 pm. At this fun event, tweens (ages 9-13) will make a snowman that is more cuddly than cold using socks and other craft supplies. Socks will be provided for those who have registered. Register for this event in the Children's library.
