Hancock Library News

Christmas is coming and after shopping, caroling, decorating, baking (oh that's right, I don't bake) and other wonderful activities, it is great to curl up with a great holiday book or movie. Here at the library we have--The Santa Clause, The Christmas Story, Home Alone 1 and 2, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and many more. Many of these can grow into great traditions while tree decorating or some other family activity. One I noticed we don't have is "White Christmas" so I will have to buy it. I love to watch it every year. And we have "It's A wonderful Life" -- Clarence --"You see George; you've really had a wonderful life. Don't you see what a mistake it would be to throw it away.?" Speaking of "It's a Wonderful Life" - our own assistant librarian Leah is acting in this play at Central Square this weekend, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 12 at 2 and 7 p.m.

We also have many Christmas books for children and adults. Just a few of them are "The Polar Express" (actually we also have that movie), "The Nutcracker" and many other books for children. For adults we have "A Minnesota Christmas" and "A Family Christmas" - both books with short stories and poems and remembrances. Anne Perry has a book every year with a Christmas mystery set in Victorian times, which I always enjoy. So don't forget to include the library even in the midst of your holiday preparations.

I have just had a terrible loss--my camera quit. This is something I use almost every day--I have my "Monday, Tuesday, Thursday" project on Facebook--taking pics for next year's library calendar, the holidays coming up, and just life in general I feel really lost without my camera so now have to figure out my next move--a new camera?? We'll see.

See ya at the Library!!
