Tutoring for middle school students is available on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m., high school tutoring is on Thursdays at 5:30 p.m., and adults taking courses can get help on Thursdays at 6:45 p.m. We also have Homework Helpers on Tuesdays at 7 p.m. The tutoring is free of charge and is provided by a certified educator with experience in math and science.

Books are available for the December gatherings of our book clubs. Copies of the book “Sarah’s Key” are available for the members of Readers’ Circle, which meets this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Spine Crackers will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 6 p.m. and discuss “Hold Me Closer, Necromancer.”

Craftapalooza is coming. Celebrate the season on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. with a variety of Christmas crafts, some cocoa and a visit with Santa Claus. This is a great way to spend a winter afternoon.

Chicks with Sticks Knitting/Crochet Club will meet on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 7 p.m. for that last big push to finish those Christmas projects. Whether you are a novice or an expert, you can sit and knit or crochet in great company.

On Thursday, Dec. 13, at 7 p.m., the Movie Night at the library will be a holiday classic. Join Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen as they ring in the holidays with the 1954 classic, “White Christmas.” Join us for popcorn and a great movie and we won’t stop you from singing along.

Our last Tech Time for Seniors for 2012 will take place on Thursday, Dec. 20, from 1 to 3 p.m. Need to learn how to use your new digital camera before the grandkids arrive, or learn to send Christmas emails? The library staff can help.

Our last event before the holiday break is on Saturday, Dec. 22, at 1 p.m., when the family can come and decorate gingerbread men, sip some cocoa and watch “Arthur Christmas.” Spend some downtime at the library before the extended family arrives.
