'One can never have enough socks. Another Christmas has come and gone and I didn’t get a single pair. People will insist on giving me books.'
~ Professor Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K Rowling.

It's been a long hard ride, got a ways to go,
Happy December!! While you're running around purchasing your Christmas presents try to remember that a book, a Kindle book, or a magazine subscription make the perfect gift. Even a gift card to the bookstore makes a great gift for that special person, Secret Santa present, or even a present for"the boss". Also, when donating to toys for tots, add a book to your list. Sometimes, this is the only chance for a child to own their own book.
Here are some special programs this Christmas season for the whole family to enjoy...
Check out Silas Bronson's Library "Snowball Readers" program for children. Students pledge to read for 25 hours between December 2 and January 31, 2014 and will be entered into a contest to win some great prizes. Great program to get children interested in reading, especially when they're "snowed" in. Click on the link below to find out more information.
Check this out!!! Barnes and Noble is having a "Polar Express" Party on December 6th at 7:00pm. There will be a reading of the classic story written by Chris Van Allsburg along with activities and treats. For more information visit the link below.
