Holiday DVDs
Drop by the library and grab some DVDs to keep you and your family entertained during the holidays! The library has hundreds of great DVDs for all ages, including both current and classic movies, and we can help you request any titles the library doesn’t own. Find a list of the movies and other audio-visual materials most recently added to the collection in the “new materials” link on the library’s web page.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten 
Build your child’s brain power with the simple and enjoyable act of sharing books! The library is busy planning the launch of “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten,” a program for children ages birth to 5. Research suggests that children who are read to regularly gain a lifelong edge in learning. 1,000 books can be accomplished with just one book read aloud each day for five years or three books per day for one year. Look for more information about this exciting new library program in January.

Nutcracker Display
Classic holiday nutcrackers in a variety of shapes and sizes fill the library display case during December, thanks to the generosity of Jack Foreman, 11, a sixth-grader from Mount Zion. Jack, the great-nephew of Library Technician Shelly Smith, has been collecting for a few years and has built his collection to about 50 nutcrackers. 
