            The month of November is quickly coming to a close.  December will be here in just a couple of days.  Wow, the last month of the year, it’s hard to believe that the year 2012 is almost ended.

A sincere thank you to Mrs. Teresa Russell for speaking at the Friends Night at the Library Program earlier in the week.  Mrs. Russell gave a wonderfully informative program about the state of HaywoodCountySchools and her goals and vision for the future of our school system.  Thank you, Mrs. Russell, for being with us and sharing your passion for education with us.

            Here is the calendar of events for the month of December here at the library.

            We have Toddler Time on Monday, December 3rd at 11am.  All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to listen to stories, color/craft, and have a light snack.  We love Toddler Time at the Library!

            Gingerbread house Family Night will be here on Friday, December 7th at 7pm.  What do we do at Gingerbread House Family Night?  Well, we read the stories of “The Gingerbread Baby” and “Gingerbread Friends.”  After we read the stories, we make gingerbread houses from milk cartons, frosting, graham crackers and candy.  It is lots and lots of fun.  We enjoy having this program every year.  Since our space is limited, reservations are required.  Please call the library at 772-9534 to make your reservations for Gingerbread House Family Night.

            We have Toddler Time on Monday, December 17th at 11am.  All toddlers and their families are invited to listen to stories, make a craft, and have a light snack. 

            The Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Monday, December 24th; Tuesday, December 25th; and Wednesday, December  26th in observance of the Christmas Holiday.

            A happy and blessed All Saint’s Day to you all.  Since we’ve stuffed ourselves silly with sweets on All Hallow’s Eve yesterday, we can take the time to remember all our family and friends who have passed on before us.  Fall is a time to think back and see if we’ve accomplished what we set out to do as winter approaches.  Winter will give way to spring and we start the cycle anew.

            Life here at the library is slowing down somewhat for the fall and winter.  We aren’t offering as many programs as we do in the spring and summer, however, we have some great events coming up.  Here is the schedule of events for the month of November.

            November 5th is Toddler Time at 11am.  All toddlers and their caregivers are invited to listen to stories, color/craft, and have a light snack.  Toddler Time will also be offered on November 19th at 11am as well.  We love Toddler Time at the Library!

            Tuesday, November 20th at 7pm is Friends Night at the Library.  We are finalizing our guest speaker plans as we speak, as soon as we have confirmation, we will let you know.  However, we want to encourage everyone to attend this event sponsored by our Friends of the Library Organization.  We promise an evening of great information.  Light refreshments will be served.  The Friends Organization assists the library by raising funds to help purchase materials for the library, and assists in purchasing supplies for programs that are offered, like Gingerbread House Family Night.  Please support our Friends of the Library Organization.

            The Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd and Friday, November 23rd, in observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Everyone have a blessed day.

            We must say “Thank You” to Kris Phifer for presenting a wonderfully informative program about the American Heart Association for the Lunch & Learn Program last week.  The American Heart Association is very busy and it is a wonderful cause.  Thank you Kris for being with us and sharing the American Heart Association with us.  The library will not be offering Lunch & Learn for the months of November or December.  Lunch & Learn will return in January 2013.

            Happy Reading!
