Newspaper Column for 12-7

We’re taking a brief break from holiday events this weekend to focus on books and movies and other fun things for you to check out while family and friends gather. Never fear, though, more events are on the horizon.

We will “Make it Merry” on Wednesday afternoon, December 13, from 3:30-4:30. Kids (and their grownups) are invited to stop in, make a polar bear ornament and/or a DIY snow globe, and enjoy some hot cocoa.

Tea will be the hot beverage of choice the following day. Actress Jessica Michna returns to the library on Thursday the 14th for a 1:00 p.m. program on Christmas in Victorian Scotland. Jessica will portray Margaret Cummins, head housekeeper at Balmoral Castle, as preparations are made for the royal family’s Christmas visit. Following Jessica’s presentation we will enjoy tea and shortbread in the main level meeting room.
