Is there anything for the kids to do at the library during their Winter Break?  You bet!  Pre-school storytime and baby storytime will take place as usual on Wednesday and Thursday. In addition there will be two fun activites for school age kids: a Monopoly Tournament on Friday, December 28, and a Hobbit Party on Thursday, January 3rd.

And of course, the library is always a good place to stock up on a few good reads to tide you over the holidays. Winter is the best time to snuggle up with a good book and read!
