Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s the Holidays!

Calling all children (yes, those babies and toddlers too)! Come join us this Saturday, December 9 at 10:30 AM for our Jingle Jam holiday celebration.  We’ll sing joyful and merry songs and partake in festive moving and grooving.  Rumor has it, if a certain North Pole resident can fit us into his super duper busy schedule, he will stop by for a visit.
All children and their families are welcome to this drop in event.  Holiday spirit is a must! (Only those on the Nice List need attend.)

It’s the Holiday Season!

On Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30 PM, Roger Tincknell kicks off the holidays for us with his “Winter Solstice” musical event.  Playing various instruments from guitar to balalaika, Roger performs Christmas, Hanukkah, and other winter holiday songs.  This program is for children age 5 and older and their grownups and does require registration.

On Saturday, December 9 at 10:30 AM join us for our Jingle Jam.  We’ll sing holiday songs and move to holiday beats. (And a certain North Pole resident may stop by if he can squeeze us into his action packed schedule.)  This event is for all children – yes, even babies and toddlers! No sign up required.

Make a holiday souvenir on Wednesday, December 20.  Kids can stop by the Children’s Desk between 10 AM and 12 PM to pick up a craft. While supplies last.

What is Dinovember?  Every week in November a picture of the library’s dinosaur toys will be posted on our Dinovember display across from the Children’s Reference desk and the library’s Facebook page of what the dinosaurs do at night at the Pollard Library.


Refe and Susan Tuma, the creators of Dinovember have also written the picture book that you can check out from the library called What the Dinosaurs Did Last Night: A Very Messy Adventure.  Our Dinovember display also has an assortment of dinosaur books for children available to be checked out.  This week, it looks like the dinosaurs got into our dinosaur nonfiction section and left a big mess for the librarians to pick up!  Stay tuned to find out what library dinosaurs do next.
