Christmas at the Library

Friends of the Paris Library will host “Christmas at the Library” on Thursday, December 7.

Children aged 8 and younger (accompanied by an adult) are invited to stop by Paris Public Library from 6pm to 7pm to visit with Santa and Mishka the Christmas Dog. This is an “open house” hour so families may come and go as their schedule permits.

Parents are welcome to bring their cameras to take a photo of their child with Santa. The Friends will give a small gift to each child while supplies last.

Christmas at the Library has been an annual holiday event at Paris Public Library since 2009.

A holiday sale table of like-new books for adults and children will open December 1. This sale near the upstairs desk is much smaller than our annual sale in March; it will continue during regular library hours through December 22.
