Santa party 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 be visiting the library on Saturday, Dec. 3, from 10-11 a.m. Bring the kids or grandkids and your cameras for some candid shots as your child has a little one-on-one visit with Santa. There will be crafts to do in the meeting room and Santa will have a treat for all his visitors. Moms and grandmas can pick up their poinsettia orders and do a little shopping at the Friends sale in the meeting room at the same time.

Poster unveiling and kick-off

Framed posters, “Of Time and Place” are currently on display at the library, Solon State Bank and Bridge Community Bank. The official unveiling of the new Toni Russo fundraising poster for the Friends of the Library will take place at the holiday sale event.

Tree decorating contest begins

The last decorated tree is 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.
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place as well at the Humanity Award. Trees will be judged for placement by the tree committee. The newly formed tree judging committee will take the place of the public vote from previous years. The community will vote for the Humanity Award.
