Join the Children’s Department as we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the children’s favorite Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Little Women follows the beloved March sisters as they grow up during and after the Civil War. Register to celebrate Christmas with your family. Activities will include paper dolls, making a wooden top, and making an ornament that you can take home for your own Christmas. Remember the march’s were living in genteel poverty and Christmas was a time to help those less fortunate. So families at the program will paint wooden toys that will then be donated to one of the children’s organizations in the area. Of course we will have a Christmas tree in need of decorations. Help by stringing popcorn and cranberries. Also we will carol throughout the departments of the library. Hopefully it will be cooler outdoors so we may enjoy hot cocoa and cookies. You may register by calling 440-255-8811 x 220. Step back in time for a New England Christmas.

Stop by the Children’s Department to help us with our ongoing Scrabble game! Stop by the desk to pick out 7 letter tiles. Arrange your tiles to spell out a word that can connect with the already played tiles, making one giant crossword puzzle! You are welcome to swap out up to all 7 of your tiles one time. If you play a word that is worth 22 point or more you win a prize! The board will be cleared every day, so if you didn’t hit your point goal, you can always try again another day.
