Friends of the Paris Library will host the sixth annual “Christmas at the Library” on Thursday, December 4.

Santa with Mishka and Mishka's "mom"

Children aged 8 and younger (accompanied by a parent) are invited to stop by Paris Public Library from 6pm to 7pm to visit with Santa and Mishka the Christmas Dog. Parents are welcome to bring their cameras to take a photo of their child with Santa. Friends will give each child a small book as long as supplies last.

This is an "open house" hour so families may come and go as their schedule permits.

The holiday sale table of like-new books for adults and children and other items will open that evening. Shop for a nice book, bookbag, or a library centennial ornament as a stocking stuffer or gift exchange. This sale near the upstairs desk will continue during regular library hours through December 23.
