What a great way to make some Christmas memories! Get the whole family involved in making a Gingerbread House. 

While purchased kits are allowed, you are free to buy more kits and add on.  Judging will be for Family/Team Entry and another for a Book Themed Entry.

Bring your entries in by Monday, December 11.

Gingerbread House

More Christmas memories!

All children are more than welcome, but this will be especially accessible for the preschool aged group since they won't get lost in the shuffle of the bigger crowd that gathers at the City Christmas Tree Lighting.

Help for Libby


There is another app called SimplyE that you may use as well.  They have just added thousands more eBooks and eAudiobooks.  If you haven’t used it yet, here are simple instructions:

  • Download the SimplyE app from the Apple or Google Play store
  • Open the app
  • Find your library
  • Search or browse for ebooks and audiobooks
  • Click on “Get” when you find the title you want
  • The first time only, you must type in your library barcode number and PIN (phone number) without spaces or dashes; this information is now saved
  • Read (or listen) and enjoy!

I hope this helps!  SimplyE of Amigos continues to be available to you if you need help –


Please return your books in a timely fashion.

Please think of others by washing your hands before reading a book and by not coughing or sneezing into it.
