I don’t know about you, but I’m still dreaming up ways to use leftover turkey. Which isn’t so bad, really, but it’s time to switch gears because we have been Christmas-ified here at the library. And none too soon, as this Saturday is our annual Breakfast with Santa!

There are all sorts of things happening at the library that morning – The Friends are having their cookie sale ($7 for a one-pound box of assorted goodness), a book sale, and the aforementioned breakfast with the big guy. For $3 a person you receive pancakes cooked to order (regular or chocolate chip), applesauce, beverage, and a seasonal treat. Plus a chance to whisper your wishes in Santa’s ear. Breakfast runs from 8:00-10:30, the cookie sale will go on until there are only crumbs left, and the book sale will last until noon. All the activity will be in the library’s lower level.

We are also commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission with a program given by local space enthusiast Mike Nofz. Apollo 8 was a risky, rushed-forward mission that turned out to be a fantastic success and just what the country needed after all the heartache and strife we lived through in 1968. Mike’s program will be Tuesday evening, December 4, beginning at 6:30.

Watch for movies and music and a little holiday magic in the weeks to come. I hope we see you soon!
