Library board applications due Nov. 28

Applications for vacancies on the library board are due at the library by Monday, Nov. 28. Openings include terms for two adult positions residing within the Solon city limits, and one adult position representing the rural Solon area. Positions are volunteer, four-year terms appointed by the mayor. Terms begin Jan. 1. Library board meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month at 7 p.m.

Friends of the library holiday sale

Friends of the Solon Library will be hosting the annual holiday sale on Friday, Dec. 2, from 2:30 until 6 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 3, from 9 a.m. until noon. Items offered will be preordered jar mixes with a few extra for cash and carry. The old favorites will be featured in this year’s jar mixes. Included are mocha coffee, three soups, three bar mixes and a new peanut butter chocolate chip loaf. Poinsettias that were preordered will be available for pickup as well as a few cash and carries for late shoppers. Joyce’s Greenhouse in North Liberty is supplying the poinsettias this year.

Santa party on Saturday, Dec. 3

The library is beginning a new tradition with Santa this year. In previous years, Santa has made an evening appearance at the library. This year, Santa will visit the library on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10-11 a.m. as part of the Friends of the Solon Library holiday sale. Bring the kids, grandkids and your cameras for some candid shots as the child has a one-on-one visit with Santa. There will be a craft to do in the meeting room and Santa will have a treat for all his visitors.

Stop and see the trees

Over 20 beautifully decorated Christmas trees are in place in the reading area at the west end of the library, so let the contest begin. Entries have been received from individuals, families, clubs and businesses with proceeds from the event benefiting Solon Habitat for Humanity. Tree themes run the gambit, from Victorian, to a beach holiday, to the 1980s. There is also a dog tree, a tree for Cubs fans, several with nature themes, and of course, a tree with the Spartan theme.
