Cookie Exchange & Crafting party

Join us on Sunday, December 15th at 2 PM for an afternoon of cookies and crafts. Bring a few dozen of your favorite homemade cookies for everyone to try. We will have a tasting then vote for favorites in different categories. Bring in a tin to collect cookies from others.

We will also be making a snowman craft. We have an example at the front desk at the library. These are great for decorating your home, or giving as a gift. Materials will be provided, but if you want a colorful hat for your snowman, bring in some fun socks.

Children must be accompanied by a parent.

Trustee needed for Library Board

Starting in February, we will need a new trustee for the library board . One of our trustees is moving away from Mount Morris. The requirements are simple. You must live within the village limits. If you live in the village and support the library, consider becoming a trustee. We meet the third Wednesday of each month at 7 PM. Trustees help set the budget and policies for the library.

Anyone who is interested in becoming our new trustee can send a letter of interest to the library letting us know why you would like to serve in this way. If you have any questions, you may contact a board member or the library director.

Christmas Decor Exchange

Last year we gave everyone the opportunity to bring items in that they wanted to get rid of and take what they wanted. It worked so well we thought we would do it again! Bring any Christmas item that you are not using that someone else might enjoy. If you want to bring lights, they must be in good working condition. Share instead of throwing away. Find something new. It is a simple idea that can brighten everyone’s holiday!
