Story Hour children will hear bear stories, including Polar Bear Night by Lauren Thompson, on December 8 and December 9 at 10:15 a.m. The sessions are for children ages 3 – 5 years old who are registered for the program.
The annual Toys for Tots toy drive will be running until December 11. A donation box is located in the front foyer of the library, and donations will be distributed through the Family Christian Development Center in Nappanee.
The library recently received a donation in memory of Barbara Holaway and has added the following books to our collection; Beautiful Moon – A Child’s Prayer by Tonya Bolden , Blizzard by John Rocco, Hiawatha by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, My Grandfather’s Coat retold by Jim Aylesworth, and The Three Little Pigs by Margot Zemach.
