Hazel Mackin Community Library

Events for the week of December 3rd, 2018

From Director, Krissa Coleman


We are thrilled to host you and your family for our Holiday Event on Tuesday, December 11th, 5:30-7 pm at the library.  Come and celebrate the season by taking pictures with Santa, enjoy cider and cookies, make and take crafts and live music with Joyful Brass.  It is always a night of joy and great memories! Feel free to invite your neighbors for a free night out on the town.

Double our Donation Campaign has officially begun!  We recently received a $25,000 donation for our library parking lot so efforts are in full swing to match that amount in hopes of retiring this debt.  The library is an integral part of the larger community and as members of that community, we have a great opportunity to show our support by matching this amazing gift.  To start this “Double the Donation” campaign, the library Board has personally pledged $1,500. Your financial help helps everyone. Please mail or drop off a check payable to the Hazel Mackin Community Library.  Feel free to contact any board member if you questions. Information is available here on our website.

Story Time: Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:30-11:15 am.  Bring your children ages 4 and under and look forward to lots of laughs and learning.  Story time includes: songs, finger play, stories, crafts, sensory bins and a theme each week. 

November 26th and 28th will be Shapes, December 3rd and 5th will be Reindeer, December 10th and 12th will be Elves and December 17th and 19th will be Santa.  There will be no story time the week of December 23rd and the week of December 31st.  

Paws to Read: Julie and Ole November 26th, 4-6 pm.  Take advantage of this time with a trained therapy dog to help build your child’s reading skills.

Letters to Santa Writing Station: Starts December 1st and goes until the 21st.  We will provide everything you need to get your letter ready for Santa.  We even have the mail box to send the letters to Santa.

If you can’t come during this time, feel free to bring in your projects and grab a friend to come in and work in the evening.  We have people always using the library for a variety of reasons and we have some great spots to enjoy conversations and get something done at the same time.

Strong Seniors: this group meets every Tuesday and Thursday, 1-2 pm.  Chair workouts are done with light hand weights. In this cold season, come on in to get your body moving!
