Most of the Christmas Past trees has arrived! All ornaments this year are made with fabric. Be sure to come in and vote for your favorite by Tuesday, December 7th! Christmas Past was started by Charlene Cole in 2003 to celebrate the Sandy Creek Bicentennial. It continues as a Girl Scout Service Project in her memory. After the trees are displayed for the community to enjoy at the library, they are donated to bless local individuals and families who may be in need of some extra holiday cheer.
The next Annie Porter Ainsworth Memorial Library Board of Trustees meeting will be held at the Library on Thursday, December 9th at 6:00 pm. The public is welcome to attend.
The Library has some neat and informative databases for you to check out on our online databases page. They are FREE to access, all you need is your library card.
