Fort Scott Public Library will host its Second Annual Holiday Party on December 19, in the temporary library location in the Memorial Hall basement.
Holiday stories and songs will start off the party, which opens its registration table at 3:45 p.m. and runs from 4-5 pm. Activities, prizes, snacks and crafts will also be offered for various age levels, and families will stay together as they move through the various activities.
Children and teens of all ages are encouraged to attend, and all children 2nd grade and under will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
The library is looking for volunteers and donors from the community to help make the event a success. Pre-registration is available by joining the Facebook event, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the library at 223-2882, or filling out the registration sheet at the library.
In 2015, the party brought in around 50 attendees, who enjoyed the variety of activities and commented favorably on the overall event. Librarian Valetta Cannon hopes this year will be just as successful, and will also bring new patrons in to see what the library has to offer, both in materials available for borrowing and youth programming.
