It’s the holidays
Posted December 12th, 2017 in Uncategorized
Whew. If you are as swamped as some of us are with preparing for the holidays, you have our sympathies. And, we have some things that just might help make your life a little easier.
Come check out our displays of helpful holiday books. We can help you find new scrumptious tidbits for your holiday party or family get together. If you’re in a rut with your holiday decorations, we have helpful hints for that.
Do you need a break and something to help you get into the holiday spirit? The Friends of the Library have a wonderful present for the community – John Hardy is performing his one-man show “A Christmas Carol.” Join us Sunday, Dec. 17 at 3 p.m., at the Abingdon Community Center and watch John bring more than 40 characters to life. His show is a faithful adaptation of Charles Dickens’ book, and he’s wonderful.
We’re also showing a Christmas movie at the main library. Visit us Friday, Dec. 15 at 2 p.m., and check out “It Happened on Fifth Avenue.” The Damascus branch library offers a movie Wednesday, Dec. 20 at noon.
The Hayters Gap branch library offers a Gift Wrapping workshop Tuesday, Dec. 19 from 4:30 -6:30 p.m. Come get some tips on how to make your packages look beautiful.
If you’d prefer a time to just sit and enjoy an activity with friends and family and want to get out of the house for a while. Come to the Damascus branch library Dec. 19 from 4-6 p.m., and play a board game.
If you’d like to help others during this season, drop food donations at any of our libraries – particularly peanut butter. We’ll forgive your fines if you do.
We hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful holiday season. We’ll be closed Dec. 24 and Dec. 25, so be sure to visit us before then and stock up.
