The library will host a very special holiday market with more than 20 booths of art, crafts and unique gift ideas from local artists and crafts persons. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase gifts for the holiday season while supporting area artists, and you will definitely find things to give as gifts that people don't already have! Breakfast tacos, homemade chili, Frito pie and chilidogs will be available, as well as home baked goods to eat there or to take home and serve to guests during the holiday season.
Santa Claus will arrive by fire truck and be at the library from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. to meet with the children and participate in a community art project. We hope you come out and enjoy this community event!
