Elgin Public Library got into the spirit of the season by inviting Santa Claus to come and read stories to the children. Twenty-three eager children enjoyed listening to stories and visiting with Santa.
The festivities continued with Junior High and High School students building and decorating Gingerbread houses. They had lots of fun designing, and eating (their decorations) while building their houses.
To celebrate the Christmas season we visited the first grade at Elgin Public and St. Boniface to read Jingle Bells by Iza Trapani. The book takes us on a Christmas sleigh ride around the world to discover traditions from Mexico, Sweden, the Philippines, Poland, Italy, Kenya, and the United States. To celebrate a tradition from Mexico, the children made poinsettias.
An open house will be held at Elgin Public Library December 18 from 1:00 to 7:00. Stop by the library for some hot apple cider and cookies.
Book Club will be held today, December 18, at 3:00.
Boys and Girls,
We just received word that Santa will be dropping in at Elgin Public Library on Sunday, December 15, at 2:00. He wants to read a story to the children of Elgin. So you are all invited to come to the library on Sunday and listen to Santa read a Christmas story. We will also have juice and cookies. Hope you can come. We are excited to have Santa at the library.
We had a great crowd for our Healthy Food Fast using your multi-cooker on December 4. . The class was taught by Extension Educators Brittany Spieker and Kayla Hinrichs. They gave us lots of great information and good food.
Thank you to all who joined us!
