Deck The Friends Place

Decorating of the Friends Place will be Friday, December 1st at 9am.  We will need help with our gingerbread fence sitters and picture hanging canvas on the pavilion.  We’ll be adding a tree this year and will be inviting people to decorate a tree cookie to add as decoration.  We want everything to look its best for Santa’s visit.

The Friends will meet on Thursday, December 7 at 5pm.  We hope you will join us as 2023 comes to a close and we look forward to 2024.

Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus have accepted the invitation of the Mellen Lions Club to visit our library.  They will be here Saturday, December 9, 1-3pm.  Come and visit with the Claus’s!  Bring your wish lists and camera for pictures.  Each child will be presented with a gift of a book and a chance to enter a drawing for a bike, courtesy of the Lions Club.

The Acrylic Painters will meet on Thursday, December 14, 6-9pm.  We will be painting along with Angela Anderson’s “Red Christmas Truck with Wreath” video.  The tutorial is about 2 hours long.  Contact the library if you would like to attend.

The library will be replacing the carpet with tile the last week of December. We will need to be closed for a few days to accomplish this. We’ll have a fresh new look for 2024 thanks to our Friends of the Library and help from the Mellen Lions Club.

Don’t forget about our Friends of the Library Book Sale.  We have many books, books on CD, and DVDs to choose from.  It’s ‘Fill a bag for $1’.  Because we have full shelves currently and are trying to prepare for new flooring, we are not accepting any donations at this time.  We thank you for thinking of us and will let you know when we have room for your donations once again.
