X-mas books for kids!
With the soft jingle of bells, a mysterious gift falls from the sky.
Christmas is a busy time of year. It can be hard to keep the kids entertained while harnessing their excitement. Or maybe you need a break from the Christmas hustle and bustle? Visit us each day during the week leading up to Christmas for a range of fun free events for kids and parents at the Library.
Please note that children under 14 must be supervised by an adult at our Christmas events.
