December at the Arcanum Public Library

The Arcanum Public Library is ready for a busy holiday season, and has plenty of resources available for patrons to help with their own busy schedules. The library has a large collection of cookbooks, books about crafts, games, and decorating, plenty of holiday movies, and a separate section just for Christmas. Come on in for a dose of holiday spirit.

StoryTime for preschoolers will be on December 5, 12, and 19 at 10:00. The session on the 19th will be the winter party. Join us for stories, songs, crafts, and more.

The after school program for kids in grades 1-4 (SPARK) will be on December 5, 12, and 19 from 3:45-4:45. Hang out with friends, play games, have a snack, and have lots of fun. The 19th will be the winter party.

Patrons can help the library decorate for the holidays by entering the 2nd annual Gingerbread House Contest. Houses will need to be brought to the library on December 6, 7, 8, or 9. Judging will take place the following week. The houses will be on display for the month of December. Check with the library for more details, and come in to pick up your house “base”.

There will be an adult coloring program on Tuesday, December 12 at 4:00. This Christmas themed event is a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon. Supplies are provided, and beverages will be served.

Also on Tuesday, December 12 will be the book club meeting at 5:30. In addition to discussing the book “my grandmother asked me to tell you she’s sorry”, the next book, “Long Way Gone” by Charles Martin, will be handed out. All are welcome to join the group. Snacks are served.
There will be a Christmas Craft Night for children on Thursday, December 21 from 6:00 – 7:30. This event is a free, drop-in program, and is always well-attended. Kids will leave with plenty of awesome creations.

The library will be challenging adults to read more this winter with our “Resolve to Read More” winter reading challenge. The dates will be from January 1, 2018 to March 31, 2018. Check with the library for details.

The library wants to remind patron that it will be closed on Monday, December 25, and Tuesday, December 26, and on January 1 and January 2.
