November has been filled with fun activities here at the library! Patrons have stopped in our open card-making workshops to craft cards for sick children in the hospital. A volunteer will be delivering them to our local St. Jude Chapter later this month. First-grade students visited from District 102. Patrons enjoyed yoga at liberty hall. Our Quiet Corner Book Club met and decided the list of books to be read in the next year. The Family Reading Night Camp Out had families reading in forts with flashlights! For Principals Read Night, District 102 students were treated to a story by special guest, Mrs. Lindsay of Rogers Elementary. Lastly, volunteers have been busily preparing craft kits for the upcoming 2nd Annual MHPL Christmas Tree Lighting and Community Sing, happening on November 26th. We are so excited for this opportunity to gather together with our community!
Please note that the library will be closed on Thursday, November 28th and Friday, November 29th for Thanksgiving.
