Our Virtual Holiday Story time is almost here!

The library will begin our story time the week of Thanksgiving. Each week we will feature someone in our community reading one of their favorite holiday books. The readings will be recorded and then posted on our Facebook page each week through December. We hope everyone will come together and enjoy the stories while getting to see some familiar faces.

Once posted, you will be able to enjoy the stories as many times as you wish.
