Happy December,

Visit our libraries this month for a variety of events. We'll help you; make a personalized card for someone special, wrap up your packages, savor something sweet, express your creativity in paint, and much more.

While you're here, check out a copy of one of Michael Zadoorian's books. The author will be visiting January 24th, 2019 at 6pm to talk about his books. In January we will also have book club discussions of two of Michael Zadoorian's books, Beautiful Music, and The Leisure Seeker, as well as a screening of the movie adaptation of The Leisure Seeker.

This newsletter covers adult events, but be sure to check out our events calendars online or at your favorite library location for details about programs for children and teens. (A certain jolly old elf will be visiting our libraries this month!)

As always, if you have any suggestions for future events, I'm happy to hear them.

See you at the library!
