December is here...

“It is December, and nobody asked if I was ready.” ― Sarah Kay

That is most certainly the way we are starting to feel around the library with Christmas approaching! Which also means, Marble's Annual Christmas Party will be happening this Friday, December 11th from 6-8 pm. Stop by the Greenway Township Hall for sleigh rides, crafts, cookies and cider! Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.

As you might know, we have Story Hour scheduled for Wednesdays at 3:45 pm, but we will be changing up things a little. Storyhour will start at 3:00 pm, because of early out Wednesdays. This coming Wednesday December 16th, Alicia will be making Birdseed Ornaments with the kids, to help out our feathered friends. Not only will we be making a snack for our feathered friends, but we will have a snack for the kids, too.

We will have a special craft hour, on Friday December 18th for our older kids, I would recommend it for children 11 years and older, adults are welcome to join us, too, since Fridays craft will be  more challenging then what Alicia will be doing on Wednesday. We are starting at 3:45 to make quilted Christmas ornaments. I dare you to google them.  I am sure you will be impressed!  They would make great gifts for grandparents, but you might want to keep them for your own Christmas Tree. 

Does anyone need motivation to read? I most certainly do at times! During the month of December, for every book you read you can enter your name into a drawing for a prize-"bucket" filled with goodies. So stop on by, check out a book and have something to curl up with when the cold days start!  After all, we are in northern Minnesota and it should be cold soon!
