The Richard H. Thornton Library invites all teens to come out December 19 @ 6:30 for Teens Night Out to “Make a Christmas Gift” (make the coolest rubber band bracelets and necklaces). This is a teen program, but adults and older children are welcome to attend. Come and learn to make an easycraft that is inexpensive, creative, and makes a fabulous Christmas present.

The South Branch Library has two special events planned for the month of December to help you get in the holiday spirit. Join us on Tuesday, December 17 from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. for a special reading of The Polar Express. Since it’s publication in 1985, this wonderful story by Chris Van Allsburg has become a holiday classic, and has even been made into a movie starring Tom Hanks. Join us for cookies and hot chocolate at this cozy story time for all ages. Call South Branch at (919) 528-1752 or stop by to register.
