Santa Claus is Coming to.... the Library!

This Tuesday, we have a very special visitor coming to the Evelyn Meador Library. Since it's December (and you read the title of this blog), you can probably guess who it is. That's right, Santa is coming! We are going to be having a special storytime starting 6:00 PM, on December 4. 

During Santa's visit, he will be singing songs and reading a story to the kids. After this, there will be lemonade and cookies, as well as a chance to take some pictures. We expect that this will be a crowded program, and everyone who comes might not be able to attend, so please come early so that you can enjoy this special visit.

Hope to see you soon and have a great Christmas season!
