Come one; come all to the South Whitley Public Library to celebrate this holiday season!
First, visit with Santa Claus on Friday, Dec. 10 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. as he takes time out of his busy schedule to hear your Christmas wishes. If the line is long, feel free to participate in other activities, including making your own Polar Express Bell ornaments to hang on your tree.
Then, at 7 p.m. Santa must bid farewell to take your list of Christmas Wishes to the North Pole, and that is when the Polar Express movie begins! Enjoy free popcorn and cocoa while you watch the movie with your family and friends.
If you’d like Santa to view your Christmas list before that night, you can drop off your letters to Santa in the Children’s Department, and Miss Meghan will be sure to deliver them to Santa for you. Bring your Favorite Teddy to This Year’s Christmas Tea!
Sign up in the children’s section for a tea party of “Teddy” proportions on Saturday, December 11 at 1:30 p.m.
Bring along your favorite teddy bear (or stuffed animal) and a parent for an afternoon of fun, games, and of course, tea! Then, leave your stuffed animal friend at the library until Monday for “Teddy’s Takover of the Library.”
Return and pick up your friend on Monday and see what mischief they have been up to while library doors are closed. Registration is required, as available spots for child and teddy are limited. Sign up in the Children’s Department. This program is free!
Santa at the Kent on Saturday!
The South Whitley Lions Club President has received a call from Santa Claus. He said he will be at the Kent Theatre this Saturday, December 11 at 12 p.m. and he will greet the children from 12 to 1 p.m. At 1 p.m., Mark Pratt will show “Santa Paws”.
Terry Eberly, of Eberly Photography, is taking pictures of Santa and the kids. You will be able to purchase pictures on his Web site and they will be ready for Christmas.
This is a free movie with pop and popcorn for each child. Other goodies can be purchased at the concession stand for the grown-ups.
Come and enjoy Santa and the show.
