Neighbors Growing Together | Aug 20, 2014

At the Library

By LeAnn Kunz, Washington Public Library | Dec 09, 2013

As we approach the last of 2013, we look back on 11 months of busy and fulfilling days here at the library. Lives at home are pretty full also, most of the time, so it is good to get away from all the same day-by-day and enjoy an event here. The next event coming your way is “Christmas Gone Green.” It will be on Saturday, Dec. 14, at 1 p.m.

You are welcome to sign up at the front desk. All ages are welcome, with children under 12 accompanied by an adult, to learn how to transform a book into a dazzling Christmas decoration. There is an example on our Web site or here at the library. All materials will be provided.

Before you start to bake and decorate, come and see our Christmas fiction books to relax with. Non-fiction cookbooks and hobby books may give you another perspective to contemplate. Enjoy the season.

The following new materials are available.
