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.
