Christmas at the Nelson library

‘Tis the season to celebrate and decorate at the Nelson Public Library.

‘Tis the season to celebrate and decorate at the Nelson Public Library.

On Tuesday, December 13 at 3:30 p.m., help trim the tree and liven up the children’s section  by making bright paper ornaments, sparkly snowflakes or multicoloured lanterns to hang from our ceiling. Lend a creative hand to fill this part of the library with vibrant and unique decorations.

During the merriment of sprinkling glitter, cutting and pasting, delicious homemade cookies will be served while seasonal tunes play softly in the background. If you are 10 and under, don’t miss out.

While you are in the library, be sure to check out some of our many seasonal books such as the Polar Express or the Huron Carol.

Short of ideas for presents? How about a homemade gift? Christmas Crafting with Kids, or Christmas Crafts from Around the World are just two of the many books on this subject in the library.

The library also has a wide variety of books on other celebrations at this time of year such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and even the winter solstice.

For more information about these or any other programs, contact the Nelson Public Library at 352-6333 or children’s librarian Nancy Radonich 352-8283.
