Parsons Public Library is hosting a series of merry activities in December for all ages, including a Holiday Tea, a visit from Santa, and much more.

 

On Saturday, December 10, the Library will host its annual Breakfast with Santa for children, ages infant to 12, at 10:00 in the basement of the Municipal Building.  Parents are encouraged to bring their cameras and take a picture of their child with Santa.  Space is limited and pre-registration is required.  Cameras will not be provided.

 

Also on December 10, at 1:00, young adults ages 11-17 can get in the holiday spirit with a craft workshop for making glass ornaments, paper crafts, simple candy making and drinks.  Light snacks will be served, and pre-registration is required for this workshop.

 

On Thursday, December 15, from 2:00 to 4:00, the library will host a festive Holiday Tea in the library’s multi-purpose room.  The public is invited to stop by and enjoy coffee, tea, light snacks and spend time socializing with others.  There is no need to pre-register for the event.

 

On Monday, December 19, at 10:00, join Miss Willie and Miss Carol for a Family Morning Movie, The Search for Santa Paws. Light refreshments will be served.  Pre-registration is encouraged, but not required.

 

Also on December 19, at 6:30, the library will host our final Tech Tip program for the year entitled Tablets 101. This workshop will include tips for safe surfing on the Internet. You will also learn what the best apps are and which ones are free and which ones are not.  Also Microsoft apps for Word and Excel, antivirus apps and more will be covered.  If you are planning on bringing your tablet, please have it fully charged.

 

It’s back! Help us build the library collection again this year by sponsoring a book. Throughout the month a Christmas tree in the lobby of the library will contain holiday ornaments, each representing a book that the library would like to add to the children’s collection.  You can sponsor a book by selecting an ornament off the tree and making a donation of $10 for each book you choose.  Your name will be printed on a bookplate which will be inserted in the front of the book.

Our Adult Afternoon Movie continues through December. Join us every Thursday for a movie, popcorn and good company. Christmas With The Kranks, December 1st at 2:00. White Christmas, December 8 at 2:00. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, December 16 at 2:00. A Christmas Story, December 22 at 2:00. McLintock, December 29 at 2:00.

Join us every Wednesday at 2:00 for Coloring. Come, relax and enjoy great conversations while your imagination goes wild. Supplies are provided, but you may bring your own.

Join Miss Willie and Miss Carol for Story Hour on Monday evening at 6:30 and Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00. Story Hour provides an opportunity for little ones ages 2-6 to interact with a story followed by a craft. Our last Story Hour for 2016 will be the 21st.
