12th Annual Holiday Open House
Thursday, December 3rd from 6 - 9 p.m.

Join us for our 12th Annual Holiday Open House featuring holiday music, crafts, merriment, puppet plays, and of course, Santa!

For a personal visit with Santa, please sign-up for one of our five Santa sessions using our online calendar reservation system or by calling the Library. Each child visiting Santa needs to register, as space is limited and the elves need to know how many presents to bring.
