LIBRARY BUDGET From Executive Director, Penny Kerfien: Due to the budget cuts of 2017, of $39,000 plus, and for 2018, of $54,609, the library will cut hours on Saturdays. There will also be a page position cut (normally a high school student, working part time.) These changes went into effect on December 1, 2017. More changes are a possibility.
GINGERBREAD Come help decorate the library’s gingerbread house this Thursday the 7th at 5 PM. We’ll be providing all the supplies.
DREIDEL Learn how to play Dreidel and earn chocolate coins next Tuesday the 12th at 3:30 PM. This traditional game is fun and easy to learn (and you can take home a dreidel to keep.)
WORD OF THE WEEK Iceblink: A reflection in the clouds caused by light hitting a field of ice.

DECEMBER PROGRAMS Help the library make a gingerbread house next Thursday the 7th at 5 PM – we’ll provide the materials.

That Saturday the 16th join us for a Who-bilation – with snacks, stories, and a visit from the Grinch himself, all starting at 2 PM. Finally, join our family book club on the 21st at 5 PM. We’ll be reading Amulet: The Stonekeeper. For adults, we have computer help on the 2nd, 5th, and 16th, as well as social hour on the 13th and a craft on the afternoon of the 14th.
