Tis the Season...

We've been celebrating the holidays here at the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library, helping the community to make ornaments, brownies in a jar, and other holiday gift ideas. As you can see from these pictures, we love to get into the holiday spirit...even Santa stopped by!

On Thursday, we enjoyed the talents of the Waverly High School Madrigal Singers, who honored us with many traditional Christmas carols, and an entertaining new take on "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

Don't forget to stop by on Monday, December 17th, at 6:00 pm to meet author Maryanne Raphael. She will discuss her mission experiences working with Mother Teresa in Missionary of Charities in Calcutta, South Africa, Mexico, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and the Bronx.

Count Down to Christmas

On Tuesday at Eastern, our storytime theme was Count Down to Christmas. We read Polar Express, and each child received a gold bell, along with a craft, counting down the days to Christmas. For a snack we drank hot chocolate and ate donuts. The kids had a great time. There were 17 Children along with 11 adults.
