Community Holiday Party

On December 8, in conjunction with the local Rotary Club, the Friends of the Library provided a free book to each of the almost 200 children who attended the Visit with Santa Claus Party at the Municipal Center. Kathy Lauritzen and Kathleen Rivers assisted the children in picking out books. Children also decorated ginger bread houses provided by the Friends.
