The New England Public Library’s December story hour was on Saturday the 7th.
Published December 13, 2013
Three families braved the bitter cold for the morning’s fun. Tara Bieber helped the children create a Santa by tracing their hand for his body and adding a red construction paper hat with a cotton ball on the end, fuzzy colored eyes, and a black dot for his nose. Then they made a Christmas tree using a sugar ice cream cone. They first frosted it with green icing, and added candy decorations, using M&Ms, nerds, and red hots. Scott Bieber read the stories “Hurry, Santa” and “Santa’s New Suit”. Everyone checked out books and had a sugar cookie before going home. The next story hour is Jan. 4th.
The library board has decided to increase the yearly membership fee beginning in 2014. The fee will be $10 for a family or $5 for a single membership. This is only for the rural people who use our city library since we receive tax monies from city residents.
Some new titles at the library are “Cross My Heart” by James Patterson, “5 Days in November” by Clint Hill, “Takedown Twenty” by Janet Evanovich, “Sycamore Row” by John Grisham, and “Nantucket Christmas” by Nancy Thayer.
