The 4th Annual Children's Christmas at the Library event was held Wednesday, December 1st, 2021 from 6-7:30 pm. Four craft stations gave our youngest patrons the opportunity to make their own Grinch-themed ornaments, door hangers, and bookmarks. Mr. and Mrs. Claus were present to read How the Grinch Stole Christmas! while lots of cookies and cocoa were being enjoyed. Our library is decorated for the season like the inside of one of the Who-Houses in Whoville from the story. And, that night, we were visited by the Grinch himself, who snuck around from room to room looking for ornaments and Christmas decorations to steal.
Everyone had a great time and we thank all the volunteers who made the event so special. We also invite everyone to view pictures of the event on our Facebook page, come to the library to enjoy our Christmas decorations, pick up an activity packet, participate in our coloring contest, and even have refreshments at our Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 18th, from 10 - Noon. And, check out How the Grinch Stole Christmas! story video on our YouTube channel!

A Nutcracker Christmas party held on December 4th, 2019, was a huge success. We had 64 visitors to the library that night, with our pre-K to 6th grade ROWVA students making nutcracker-themed crafts in stations throughout the library. Mrs. Claus, our special visitor, read the Nutcracker story to our young visitors, while they enjoyed Christmas cookies and hot chocolate. At the end of the night, Santa even came to visit, hear Christmas wishes, and have his picture taken with our visitors! We invite everyone to come to A Nutcracker Christmas Open House at the library on Saturday, December 21st, from 10 am to Noon. The library will be closed for the holidays after that day. Come see our beautiful Nutcracker Christmas decorations throughout the library, meet and talk to Bev our new librarian, and see what we've been up to in 2019: the new Pilcrow books, the new Book Club, Puzzlers club, kids' activities and more. Maybe you will find something you would like to participate in for 2020. And, please, do check out all the new books from 2019. We guarantee there is something you will like!
