December Highlights!

The December program schedule is now available! Many of your favorite programs are returning this month. Make sure you stop by the library to pick up the schedule, and then complete our NEW scavenger hunt. Our rubber ducks have wandered off, and we think they are hiding in the Children's Room. Can you QUACK the case of the missing ducks?

Also, all month long we invite you to lend a helping hand to community members in need. Our annual food drive for the Acord Food pantry is in full swing. Many of you have already donated, and we thank you for your generous contributions. If you would like to donate, there is still time! We will be accepting donations of non-perishable items here in December.
