Looking for something to do during your winter break from school?


Stop by the library for one or all of these activities.

  • Complete our elf hunt and earn a treat.
  • Watch winter/holiday movies in the youth department on the big screen, available anytime someone is here who'd like to watch.
  • Take one of our holiday activity booklets with coloring pages, word searches, puzzles, and more.



***There will be no storytimes during the weeks of Christmas and New Year's Day, Dec. 22-Jan. 3, so that we can plan great storytimes for the winter/spring 2015 session.  Storytimes will resume on Monday, Jan. 5.  There will be a puppet show on Friday, Jan. 2, however.***
