Amidst the chaos of holiday planning, shopping and baking it is easy to miss one of the most important places to visit during the season of giving; the public library.

“The holidays are a wonderful time at our libraries,” says Sarah Smith, library manager. “Holiday crafts, recipe books, children’s stories, scavenger hunts, makerspaces, and more contribute to the holiday cheer in our communities.”

This year, there are a number of ways to delight in the spirit of the season at the libraries. Each library location offers a “Cards from Home” makerspace with all of the supplies necessary to create holiday greeting cards for loved ones. Participants of all ages are invited to use the space provided at the library or gather supplies to take home and make a holiday greeting card.

“Children were overjoyed by the ornament-making kits we offered last December, so we brought them back again this year,” says Smith. The take-home kits are available for pickup during open hours at the libraries and include the supplies necessary to create a handmade ornament that is perfect for hanging at home or giving as a gift.
