Did anyone hear someone singing the lyrics from the song "Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow" last week? I'm pretty sure I heard people singing,
"Oh the weather outside is frightful . . ." What a great time to wrap up in a warm blanket, have a cup of hot cocoa, and read a good book.
Speaking of books, the Cherokee Public Library is loaded with books, magazines, newspapers, computers, games, and puzzles just waiting to used and checked out.
Our December Newsletter is chocked full of activities and news about programs the library is offering this month. So you don't miss out, pick up your copy of the newsletter at the front desk or upstairs in the children's department.
The library will have its regular story time for 3-5 year old preschoolers every Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. During the 30 minute program the children we hear Christmas stories, songs, and they will make a simple craft.
Come join us at the library for some Special Story Times. All ages are welcome. They will be Wednesday, December 16th from 1:30 -- 2:00 p.m. and Thursday, December 30th from 1:30 p.m. Mr. Tap & Go will be a special guest! We will be singing some Christmas songs, read a story, play some games, and make a Christmas craft.
The Youth in Action participated in the Friends of the Library silent auction Book Basket Project for the library in November. Their basket brought a $35.00 bid. The proceeds from the Youth in Action basket and all the other entries will go toward purchasing folding tables, books on CDs and more DVDs and display racks for the library. The Youth in Action group would like to thank all those who bid and showed their support for the library.
Be sure to stop by the Sanford Museum and check out all the beautifully and uniquely decorated Christmas trees. One of the trees is decorated by the Youth in Action group from the library.
5th and 6th grade students of the Youth in Action group will meet Thursday, December 17th from 3:45 -- 4:45 p.m. Come and see who the best Santa stuffer will be, hear the story about the Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bell, and enjoy decorating and eating Christmas cookies.
The After School Bunch, K-4th graders, will meet Tuesday, Dec. 22 @ 1:45- 2:45 p.m. Please note the change in time! Mr. Tap & Go will be a special guest. He will dance for you if you will sing for him. There will be stories, songs, and Christmas fun. Don't forget to ride Bus #3 to the library.
Last, but not least, there will be a New Year's party on Thursday, December 31st from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the library. All ages are welcome.
Preschoolers must have a companion with them. Come join in some games, stories, and songs to help bring in the new year.
During the month of December the library has decorated a table upstairs in the young people's department. Boys and girls can do hidden word puzzles, find objects on hidden picture sheets, do a simple Christmas craft, etc. The library also has some new card games that can be played at this table.
