By Jordyn Frederick

Christmas is on its way!

With it, we have fun activities for you and your family to enjoy.

We remain open for your browsing enjoyment, so feel free to come and take a look at our shelves!

The computers are available should you like to play games, complete a work certification, work on a course, or have an exam proctored.

Be sure to book an appointment with our staff.

While we have many fun activities for you to enjoy, we will be closing at 4 p.m. on December 24th and will reopen on Monday, December 27th at 10 a.m.

We are happy to help you at the front desk should you have any questions or would like a book recommendation.

Practice some mindfulness—you deserve it!

We will be joining Alicia Tate over Zoom for some mindfulness meditation.

It has been proven to boost memory, reduce stress, and more.

Join us on December 14th to do your mind some good.

Train your brain!

It is certain that coding helps children think critically and develop problem-solving skills — and have fun.

Join us on December 18th as we play Scratch, a block-based programming language.

You will be solving programming riddles before you know it!

We have two sessions planned, one at 10:30 am and another at noon.

The weather outside is frightful, but hand warmers are so delightful!

On December 22nd at 6 p.m., we will be creating our very own hand warmers to protect us from the cold.

Also, create your own bath bomb on December 29th at 6 p.m.

This is a good way for you to relax after all the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas.
