December is here and the Library schedule is full of fun holiday activities. Tuesday afternoons, December 6 and 13 at 2:00 p.m. will be the adult ornament making classes. The itinerary will include traditional German stars and Danish heart baskets with materials provided. Please let us know if you would like to attend.

The Library will also be participating in the Whitehall Christmas Stroll on December 10 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. The Friends of the Library will be hosting an open house with lots of goodies for the adults and students, while the little ones may visit Santa Claus. The Library will be open from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm that day. If you need a warm place to stop and rest for a while or just want to say hello to Santa just come on in.

Speaking of the Friends, they will be having a “cookie wrapping” meeting to prepare goodie bags for Santa on December 9th at 1:00. If you would like more information about joining the Friends or just want to stop in and see what they are up to, come join us on Friday the 9th.

With all the business of the holidays coming up, regular programming will take a break starting December 22 and resume after the first of the year. Pick up a December calendar to check when your favorite programs are running this month. The Library will be closed December 24 through December 26 and reopen with regular hours on December 27. New Year’s Day closing is from December 31 through January 2 with regular hours resuming on January 3.

The adult watercolor class, taught by Ralph Paquin is ending the current project this month and beginning a new series in January. If you would like to learn to paint with watercolors, the class will begin on Wednesday, January 11 at 1:00 p.m. The Library supplies everything you need to take the class but we would appreciate a call so that there are enough supplies for everyone.

The History Book Club meets on December 12 at 6:30 p.m. This month they are discussing a book on Ambassador Dodd who was stationed in Nazi Germany. January will be a new work entitled “The Rival Queens” by Nancy Goldstone. It is about Catherine de’ Medici and her daughter Marguerite de Valois.

This the last call for those wanting to take computer classes in January. The classes are almost full and will begin in January. If you would like to be added to the class enrollment please call the Library at 287-3763.
