A Heap o' Holiday Cheer: Programs for All Ages @ Your Library

Original illustrations from Dicken's A Christmas CarolChances are good that at some point between now and the ceremonial breaking of the first New Year's resolution, each and every one of us will temporarily give in to the bah-humbuggery that is as much a part of the season as the mistletoe, the eggnog and the annual Black Friday Feast of Immaculate Consumption. It’s natural and nothing to be ashamed of. A Christmas Carol remains so popular not because we are a nation of Tiny Tims, but because we all have at least a little Scrooge in us and we want to be reminded of the fact before the ghosts start waking us up at all hours to go flitting around the space-time continuum.

Luckily for all of us, Harris County Public Library offers a little oasis—actually twenty-seven little oases—from the hurly-burly that is the holidays, a place where you can find a nice quiet corner and comfortable chair in which to unwind and let some of the frenetic festivities go on without you, a place where you can browse the aisles and not hear the exOriginal illustration from Dickens' A Christmas Carolhausted whimpering of your credits cards in your wallet, a place to reconnect with the handmade spirit of the holidays, a place to join with others in song, and a place to sit with your child or grandchild in your lap and be dazzled again by a tale of the season.

Remember, all branches will be closed Saturday, December 22 – Tuesday, December 25 in observance of the holidays, so don’t forget to stock up on books, DVDs and music for those cozy evenings.

Below are some of the holiday programs still in store at HCPL.
