Happy Holidays in the Children's Room!

It's that time of year again--time to sample the holiday books at the library.  We have a huge selection, from classics like The Night Before Christmas to the brand new When Santa Was a Baby, and everything in-between. Come on in and check some out!
We also have some great programs going on this December:
Paws for Reading  Monday, Dec. 7 at 3:30pm 
     Come and read to Brook, our friendly Austrailian Shepherd.  She's a really good listener, and loves to hear children read.  A wonderful confidence-builder for children who are learning to read.  Please call the Children's Room at 673-2288 to make an appointment.

Gingerbread House Workshops  Thursday, Dec. 10th at 6:30pm and Saturday, Dec. 12th at 2:00pm
     Families are invited to pool their creativity and create a graham-cracker gingerbread house for the holidays! We provide the space, the graham crackers, the frosting and the music---you contribute a bag of candy to our "pot-luck" supply.  All ages are welcome with a parent who will help to make the gingerbread house.
We still have some room in the Saturday session!  Register online at www.amherstlibrary.org


Make-it/Take-it Craft     All week long--Dec. 14th-20th    Come on down to the Children's Room to make a Gingerbread Boy or Girl Stick Puppet!
 

Holiday Storytime  Thursday, Dec. 17th at 3:30pm
     Miss Sarah and Miss Sue will present a special Holiday Storytime, highlighting some of their favorite stories and songs from both the Christmas and Hanukkah traditions. We'll read books, sing songs, and create a simple craft.  It's our way of saying "Happy Holidays" to the patrons that make Amherst such a fun place to be!  Ages 3 and up.  No registration required.

Come and Build  Friday, Dec. 18th at 3:00pm
     Come to the library to build with our collection of legos, blocks, mobilos, marble runs and more.  Build the "construction project" of your dreams!
