Christmas Reading
Once again we had a terrific turn out for our annual Christmas Reading at Beckwith's Lodge in Lower Stanley. We so appreciate Bob and Marcia Beckwith for the continued use of their beautiful lodge for our reading. It is the perfect place for this most loved event. We enjoyed the reading voices of Phil Enright, Phil Coonts, Celina Moreno, Sparky and Maryellen Easom, Jane Somerville, Sylvia Hamilton, and Julie Rember. The table was again laden with delicious holiday treats and the crowd lingered long after the readings were over. What a terrific way to start off the holiday season!
Tree Lighting
Saturday, December 12 join us for the lighting of the Christmas tree in Stanley Town Square. There will be cookies and hot beverages available at the library. The Stanley Library Chime Players will perform several holiday selections. There will be a make it and take it Christmas craft, and rumor has it that Santa will make an appearance, too!
Books, Burgers, and Brews
Our Books, Burgers, and Brews program for November was held at Mountain Village Lodge November 30. We had an excellent turn out for our discussion of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll. The discussion was lively, and some were surprised to learn of the interesting background of Lewis and the real Alice and her family. Our next discussion will be in January. We will be meeting at the Kasino Club to discuss The Boys in the Boat: Nine Americans and Their Epic Quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics by Daniel James Brown.
Adult Coloring
There will be another session of Adult Coloring on Wednesday, December 16 at 6:00 pm. Colored pencils, gel pens and coloring sheets will be available, or bring your own supplies. Participants may also bring a snack and beverage of choice. There will be no holiday music or holiday themed coloring sheets, come and get away from the hustle and bustle of the season and color your holiday stress away.
