Stories and Celebrations

This Saturday, the Dorris Van Doren Regional Branch Library will have its weekly family storytime at 1:00 p.m. featuring stories about Las Posadas. Stick around or come back at 3:00 p.m. to hear part one of The Tale of Despereaux. We'll be reading the book aloud for two Saturdays in celebration of the movie release. We'll also be raffling away a free copy of the book. What can be better than listening to a story by the fireplace while sipping on hot cocoa?

You can also swing by the Westside Branch Library to celebrate their 20th anniversary! The branch was able to open its doors to the public in 1988 due to citizen involvement, money raised from private donations, and grant funds. Dorris Van Doren spearheaded the fundraising for construction and was able to get the land donated for the branch. Our branch is proud to be named after this amazing woman!

See you at these events on Saturday, December 6!
