Holiday Magic at Your Fingertips…

            

The kids will be out of school soon for holiday winter break. Are you looking for some books to read with them so they don't say, "I'm bored."  We have a display filled with books and DVDs that your kids will love. Also on display are books for making Christmas crafts and there are also holiday cookbooks for help with baking those goodies to share with your neighbors. Just remember to come in before we close for the holidays. Our hours for Christmas Eve are 10-5 and then we will be closed Dec.25- Dec 28, reopening on Monday, Dec. 29 at 1:00 pm. However, don’t forget that we are always open on-line at www.hcpl.net for renewals and for downloading e-books, e-audio and for accessing our databases. Have a very Merry Christmas!
