So much has been going on at the Richmond Library this holiday season! Our newest librarian's program for adults and teens, Homemade for the Holidays, was a huge success. It was a fun evening of meeting neighbors, sharing laughs, and making a fun and (relatively) easy craft. Cindi is planning several other programs in the future. Please stop by to let us know what you might be interested in.
We enjoyed meeting several school-age kids to talk series books last Friday. It was a fun, lively discussion. Thanks to all who came out and for sharing your favorites.
We had a wonderful musical storytime last Wednesday ("5 killer whales!") and, again, thanks to all who showed up. I hope you are all still enjoying your jingle bell bracelets. Our Family Night of Lights was wonderful. Sorry to say, our ice luminaries were merely containers filled with water, but the paper bag and tin can luminaries lining the benches beside the library were truly a sight to behold. And boy, wasn't that hot cocoa good.
Meanwhile, Ms. Eileen continues to meet on Wednesday morning with the littlest ones for Book Tots. And today, Thursday, I'll take a storytime break from the holiday-themed events to share some of the newest picture books in the library with the Mom's Club group.
Don't forget that Friday is Drop and Shop. We're fully registered with a wait list so please call if you have to cancel your registration so we can accommodate someone else.
Our final "Enjoy December at Your Library" event will be a quiet drop-in storytime for children ages 2-4 on Monday, December 21 at 10 a.m. I'll try to make this one relaxing.
And thank you for all the holiday cheer and the gifts. We love them. As a reminder, the library will be closed for Christmas from December 24 to the 27 (Thursday-Sunday). We'll be open again on December 28.
