Kwanzaa

We Close Friday at Noon for Christmas

 

We’re closing earlier than usual this year to accommodate some system repairs at the college. You’ll have to pick up your holiday books and movies by 12:00 noon this Friday, December 21st or wait until Wednesday, December 26th at 8:00 a.m. when we re-open. If you receive an electronic reading or listening device as a gift, we will be available when we re-open to help you learn how to download library books onto it!  Meantime, our very best wishes for a joyous and happy Dongzhi, Winter Solstice, Yule, Christmas, or Kwaanza; whatever you celebrate may it be festive and fun!

Children re-tell the mystery

Happy Holidays! One of the things I love about this season is how children absorb the magic of their family’s holiday tradition by hearing and telling its stories.

As we course through Hanukkah, Al Hijra, Ashura, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, and Epiphany, a lot of wonderful stories are being re-lived.

Please share with us by sending links to your tradition’s favorites in the "Add New Comment" area below. My contribution is this delightful 21st century rendition of the Christmas story from children in Auckland, New Zealand.
