Adults and kids of all ages, join Julia at the North Adams Library for a Christmas Kickoff Party on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 3 p.m. after school. Wear your ugliest Christmas sweater to participate in our Ugly Holiday Sweater contest and maybe win a prize. We’ll share refreshments, games, prizes, Christmas music, and get an early start on the Christmas season. Activities will be offered for all ages. Please call 937-386-2556 to let us know you’re coming, so we’ll have enough refreshments for everyone.

Teens, join Deborah at the Manchester Library on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 3:30 p.m. after school. We’ll work on Christmas crafts, and enjoy fun with friends at the library. Don’t miss the Teen after school program on Dec. 15, when we’ll enjoy our traditional sugar cookie decorating project.

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, learn to create a beautiful holiday wreath from burlap at the West Union Library. This hands-on crafting class is free, and open to everyone, but advance registration is required to save your seat. Please all the West Union Library at 937-544-2591 for more information.

On Thursday, Dec. 3 at 10:30 a.m., join Donelle for Teen Art Class at the West Union Library. Kids ages 10 – 16 are invited to learn basic drawing skills, explore other media and techniques, and learn about art history with illustrator and library employee Donelle Lacy.

The Manchester Elementary After School program at the Manchester Library will not be held on Monday, Nov. 30 because school will be closed for Thanksgiving break. The After School program will resume Dec. 7 and 14, and then will break until Jan. 4.

If you’d like to design, print, and mail your own custom family Christmas cards, call AmeriCorps volunteer technology trainer Melissa to ask about a hands-on tutorial. Come learn how to use free online services like Canva to easily and quickly design your own holiday card or letter, and then print your creation at the library, or save it to work on at home. Color printing is available at each library for $.35 per page. Melissa is also offering classes about Online Shopping, and how to use online resources to find coupons. Melissa offers hands-on computer training at each library, thanks to the Guiding Ohio Online AmeriCorps grant, awarded by the State Library of Ohio. Call Melissa at the Peebles Library on Monday, the West Union Library on Tuesday, the Manchester Library on Wednesday, and the North Adams Library on Thursday. Call 937-587-2085 for more information, or to make an appointment.

All four Adams County Public Library locations will be closing at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25, and will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 26 in observance of Thanksgiving Day. The libraries will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
