Countdown to Christmas

It was so popular, we're doing it again! Enjoy the special fun of unwrapping a new book and reading it together this holiday season. Stop into any of the three libraries and check out a bundle of wrapped Children's Holiday books. You can then open them one a day or all of them at once! When you're done reading the books, bring them back to the library and pick up new ones.

Available for Pickup Starting November 29

Adventure Awaits
