'Tis the Season

Driving home the other evening, I noticed some Christmas decorations already up for the season and got to thinking that maybe it was time to create a display of children's picture books celebrating this time of the year.  If you are ready to read and share some delightful stories with the younger readers you know (and yourself, too!), please come to the library and check our display and I'm sure you will find some books you will like.  We have two holiday reading displays and, as always, can help you find other books you would like.  Just ask, and let us find those books for stocking stuffers!
