What’s the best way to follow up making gingerbread men? How about giving them graham-cracker homes?

We had a special story time on Monday at our Main Branch. Kids listened as Ms. Mary read them The Gingerbread Pirates by Kristin Kladstrup.

Then the children constructed homes using graham crackers for walls and roofs and frosting as spackling paste. Finally, they decorated them with M&Ms, gumdrops, marshmallows, gummy bears and candy canes.

We still have more holiday programs coming at all three of our branches. You can come to our special Christmas Rhyme Time on Dec. 23 at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

On Monday, Dec. 29, we’ll be using recycled greeting cards to make holiday villages at our Main Branch.

The party continues in 2015 with our Year in Review program on Jan. 2 and the New Year’s party for our Teen Book Club on Jan. 3 at our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch.

You can check out more of our programs and register for them on our event calendar. If you have any questions, you can always call Mentor Library at 440-255-8811.
