  • Holiday Celebration

Join The City Library and the Shops at Library Square for our annual Holiday Celebration! Festivities include a movie screening, a holiday theatrical presentation by the Grinch Players, choral/musical performances, crafts for adults and children (a chance to knock out some of your holiday shopping with a simple homemade gift), and book signings! This year's event coincides with the Friends of the City Library Holiday Used Book Sale, which will be going on all day in the Book Sale Area. Make sure to stop by and check out the selection of great books at great prices—it's the perfect gift idea for family, friends, or yourself! And finally, don't forget to enter a drawing to win great gifts from the Shops at Library Square.
