What's New At the Library?

So, Thanksgiving is over and the winter holiday spirit has taken over the the library! You'll be sure to notice the giant toy nutcrackers painted on our windows as you walk or drive past the library throughout the month, and the large starry-snowflakes dangling in various places, as well as the candy treats!

If you're looking for a local author to support, and need a gift for that special child (or children...or adults) in your life, Pat Gabler visited with us on Tuesday, November 27th to read selections from her recently published picture books.

Pat will be visiting with us again, here at the library, on
December 4th at 6:30.
If you can't make the author talk, her 7 books are also for sale at the Whispering Winds Grainery Gallery in off of CTY JJ on Rodell Rd and at Sweet Temptations Bakery in Osseo (located next to Subway).  Pat's books include lots of color, humor, and "hidden treasures" in their pages, as well as family activities in the back. A stuff animal comes with each book you purchase.
Finally, as a continuing program throughout the month, we're inviting patrons of all ages to write their letters to Santa for a display! We'll have the stationary, crayons, colored pencils, markers, and anything else you could think of needing while writing a letter to St. Nick. Stop in, write yours, and check out the lists that other patrons have left for the Man in Red.

Cassie and Rebecca are so excited, they've already written theirs!
...I think I had better get working on mine!
Happy Reading,
