Keep Your New Year’s Resolution this Year

With the holidays over and 2019 finally here, we’ve all set our New Year’s Resolutions. However, I’m sure at least some of you are worried that this year will be exactly like last year, where halfway through January your goals were already given up. If that is the case, don’t worry. The library is here to help you accomplish those resolutions and have fun during the process. With a variety of events, resources, and opportunities, there’s no goal that we can’t help you with. Here’s just a few of the ways we can help you out:

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!

Holiday Party!

Come join us as we celebrate the holidays with festive music from our local schools, a craft activity, and a visit from the man of the season, Santa Claus.

If you have any questions, please call us at 832-927-7800.
