SOLON– The Solon Community School preschool will be entertaining during lunch at the Old Gold Diner Friday, Dec. 16. Please call 319-624-2251 for lunch reservations to enjoy their visit. It’s believed that Santa Claus might appear for the Dec. 16 meal.
A class of fourth graders will be sharing a meal with the seniors Wednesday, Dec. 21. Please sign up by calling 319-624-2251. The goal is to have a senior for every fourth grader.

Free Christmas Meal at Our Lord’s Church

Our Lord’s Church will be serving a free Christmas meal Sunday, Dec. 25. All are welcome. Reservations are not required but would be helpful. The meal will be served at noon at the church, 131 N. Market St., Solon. Rides and deliveries are also available. Call Duane and Anna at 319-841-2243 with questions or a reservation.

DVD collection anniversary

It’s now been a year since the library started the DVD collection and it has proven to be a very popular addition with our patrons. We now have almost 800 DVDs. In one year we’ve had 6,247 DVD check-outs, over 500 per month.

Early out programming

The last early out for this semester will be Thursday, Dec. 15, and it will be a holiday craft. We plan to continue the early out programs throughout the next semester. There will be a mix of crafts and movies with the first program being a movie on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012.

Last minute gifts

In the market for last-minute gifts? Don’t forget about items at the library. The commemorative poster “Of Time and Place,” featuring past display windows by Toni Russo, is available either framed or unframed. There are a few items from the Friends Holiday sale still available, as well as items sold year-round such as fanny packs, tote bags, and mouse pads. The Grant Wood note cards are always a popular stocking stuffer and we also have a few framed Grant Wood prints as well.

Library holiday decorations

Over 100 teddy bears are adorning the “beary” special Christmas tree in the children’s section of the library. Be sure and stop in the children’s area and take a look. Toni Russo’s “Candy Land” display window features two wonderful gingerbread houses baked and decorated especially for the window by Mark Mueller. Stained glass Santa Clauses from around the world are hanging gaily in the windows behind the circulation desk. These Santa Clauses were all crafted by Charles Whetstine and are on loan to the library for the holiday season.

Library hours on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, will be 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. 
Library will be closed on Dec. 25 and 26.
