Toys and a Tree
Getting ready for this weekend's Christmas in the Village celebration. There will be a craft sale, carolers, horse drawn rides, hot soup and cookies served in the town hall, and Santa Clause will visit the library. A photographer will be on hand to take free pictures of children w/ Santa. The boy scouts run various free games for children among the book stacks. The library set up a second display case earlier this year for their permanent displays. The Friends of the Library group have temporarily removed the permanent items and are showing lots of old toys. I found the contrast of toy soldiers from WWI and toy soldiers from WWII interesting. Think it's the knitting club that meets at the library that decided to make a mitten and cap tree. All of the volunteers have been instructed that if a child checks out a book they may go to the tree and take something off it for themselves. What a great idea!
