December Programs for Children
Join us for festive storytimes and events in December. Santa Claus will make his annual stop at Freeman Library on Thursday, December 13 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Parents are encouraged to bring a camera to take a picture of their child with Santa. This program is recommended for children from infants to 12 years old. Tickets are required. They are free and available from the Kids Information Desk starting 30 minutes before the program. The tickets will be numbered and the children will be called up to meet Santa Claus in numeric order.
