Christmastime at Your Library

Since Christmas is coming fast, I thought I would tell you about a few of the newest Children’s Christmas picture books in our collection:

  •  The Littlest Reindeer by Brandi Dougherty: Dot is the littlest reindeer at the North Pole. Too little to jump. Too little to kick. And too little to fly with Santa. But she’s not too little to help save the day!
  • Pick a Pine Tree by Patricia Toht: With warm joyful art and a rhythmic, read-aloud text, here is a celebration of every festive step in taking home and decorating a Christmas tree.
  • The Christmas Star by Marcus Pfister: From the author of the beloved classic The Rainbow Fish comes a book where various people and animals are drawn by a magnificent star to Bethlehem to see the newborn Christ.

December is a great time to check out a book you can snuggle up with or attend one of our fun, holiday-themed events. Here’s what’s happening at the library through the end of December:

  • Santa is coming to Storytime this week! Join us on Tuesday at 10 am or Thursday at 6 pm to visit with Santa and listen to a story.
  • Library & Lunch is Tuesday at noon! Bring your lunch and join us for a discussion of Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan.
  • Tuesday at 6 pm, come enjoy Christmas music at the Library! The library will be hosting the Liberal High School Redskin singers under the direction of Tony Claus. Contemporary and classic selections will be performed.
  • Our Ugly Christmas Sweater party is on Thursday at noon. Wear an ugly Christmas sweater for this fun party for adults! Bring a White Elephant gift that costs $10 or less, play games, and eat snacks. Adults only. Sign up on our website, or at the front desk.
  • If you signed up, don’t forget to bring your kid(s) to our Gingerbread House Decorating, this Saturday at 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm! Children ages 4-11 and their parents can come decorate a gingerbread house! Frosting and all kinds of toppings will be available.
  • Come to our Beginner’s 3D Printing Workshop on Monday the 18th at 6:30 pm to learn how to use the library’s 3D printer. We will walk through the process of finding a print-ready file online that you can print as is or alter to fit your needs. Sign up online at or at the front desk.
  • Don’t forget our regular storytimes, every Tuesday at 10 am and Thursday at 6 pm! Stories, songs, crafts, and more! Plus, every child gets a free book to take home at every storytime.
  • Do your kids need something to do over the long Christmas break? Don’t worry, the library has you covered:
    • On Friday the 22nd at 2 pm, we will be playing video games! Play the library’s Playstation 4, Xbox, or Wii.
    • On Wednesday the 27th at 2 pm, build something great on Lego Day!
    • Thursday the 28th at 2 pm, make a fun craft!
    • Friday the 29th, we will be playing board games at 1 pm, followed by a Children’s animated movie at 2 pm! Free popcorn and drinks will be served during the movie.
    • The Library will be closed on Dec. 25 & 26 for Christmas. We wish all of you a very happy holiday season!
