DECEMBER HOLIDAYS BOOKED AT THE LIBRARY

December 6, 2001 – The Children's Reading Program at Enid Baa Public Library on Main Street is featuring books and activities about December holidays in the next three Saturday sessions. Children ages 3-11 are welcome, accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Saturday will feature Chanukah, the Jewish Festival of Lights. Children will learn about the origins of the holiday, how it is celebrated and some customs, according to a release from the Friends of the St. Thomas Public Libraries.
Kwanzaa, the African-inspired harvest festival developed by Dr. Malaun Karenga, will be featured Dec. 15. Along with learning about the holiday, its symbols and celebration, children will hear from a drummer, who will teach some drumming skills and talk about how drums are made.
Christmas customs and stories are on the schedule for Dec. 22.
All sessions will include books – read to and read by children – and craft activities related to the holidays.
The Saturday program will be closed Dec. 29, Jan. 5 and Jan. 19.
The children's room of the library will continue regular hours Monday to Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. throughout the school vacation time. Again, children under 11 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Day care centers, Head Start programs and youth organizations are welcome to make appointments for visits during vacation. For information contact Diane Moody at the Baa Library, 774-0630.
