Along with all the regular programs that both the Main Library and the Vista Grande Library have to offer, during the holidays we add to the fun.
November is a time to think about Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping. Young Adult Librarian Lori Applegate, along with her TAB group will host an event for tweens and teens.
Turkey Bingo will be held Nov. 17, 6-7:30 p.m., at the Vista Grande Library. There will be BINGO, snacks and raffle prizes that include a portable wireless speaker and wireless earbuds. This event is for ages 12-17; no registration is required.
The Main Library is hosting a Local Author Event Nov. 28, 7-9 p.m. While browsing author tables, guests may even purchase an early Christmas gift for themselves or other avid readers they know. There will be a variety of genres and age groups represented, and light refreshments will be served.
As we roll into December, our Cookies, Coffee and Coloring at both libraries will have holiday cookies and coloring themes. This is a wonderful way for friends to get together, out of the house, and enjoy each other’s company, maybe even swap holiday ideas.
We encourage you to bring your own coffee, with all the fun holiday flavors! The group meets Tuesdays at the Vista Grande Library from 3 to 4 p.m. and at the Main Library from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Fridays.
Is your child too scared to sit with Santa? Join us for a special Santa-phobia Christmas Storytime at the Main Library Dec. 12 from 10 to 10:45 a.m. Storytime will include Christmas stories and songs, sugar cookies, a craft, as well as several different Christmas and winter-themed backdrops to choose from for a family photo. Make sure to bring your own cameras/phones and library staff would be happy to take the pictures for you!
