Santa is taking time from his busy schedule to make a visit to the Deposit Free Library. On Friday, December 16th at 6:30, the jolly old elf will stop by to read Christmas stories. All children and their parents are invited to join us for this annual event. Take some time out from the hectic pace of the holidays to enjoy a quiet time with your kids. If you’d like, wear your pajamas and get a photo to preserve an old-fashioned holiday memory. Merry Christmas from the library!
