Preschoolers can expect a story from the Jolly Old Elf himself when Santa visits Story Time on Thursday, December 17, at 10:30 AM.
You are running out of time to sign-up for The Perfect Pie Party on Thursday, December 17, from 6-8 PM. Master pie maker Ruth Beck takes you through the steps to create a picture perfect cherry or apple pie to take home and bake when you please. Cost for this class is $20 per person. Please register at the library.
Story Time will not be held on Thursday, December 24, or Thursday, December 31, due to Christmas break. Preschoolers can join us again on January 7.
Remember to pick up some quiet time entertainment early since the library will be closed for the Christmas holiday on Thursday and Friday, December 24 and 25.
This Time Together, by Carol Burnett, is the December Book Club selection. Register, check out and finish the book by the meeting date, and join this group on Monday, December 28, at 1 PM for the discussion. Stop at the library to sign up, or call 319-342-3025.
Help us empty the tags from the Adopt a Book tree. Choose a children’s book, purchase it, and then receive recognition for your donation with a bookplate placed in that book.
The library has candles, wax melts, magnets, bookmarks, album bowls, and hand-stamped cards for purchase. Pick up Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers when you grab your books and movies.
