Capitol Hill Library Hosts Annual Holiday Open House

They may not be roasting chestnuts on an open fire, but the staff of the Capitol Hill Library is planning a holiday good time just the same.

Capitol Hill Library’s annual Holidays @ the Hill event is just the place to start spreading good cheer.  The event is planned for Saturday, Dec. 4 from 11:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.  The library is located at 334 SW 26th St.

“We’ve been hosting this celebration of all things festive for several years now,” said library manager Phil Tolbert, “and I’ve realized something for a long time.  This is just too much fun for one holiday.  It should go on all year.”

This year Phil and the Hill Gang have a full day’s worth of pleasure in store for library customers.  There will be a live band in the afternoon, craft activities for kids provided by Rainbow Fleet, artist Debbie Langston teaching how to make watercolor greeting cards, a live story time in the morning with Library Elf Kelley Riha, and face painting by the other library elves.

As special treats, books will be given away to children who are present.  Each child will receive one free book.

And the biggest thrill of all comes from getting a free photo with Santa, starting at 10:00a.m.  This should be a popular attraction so a prior sign-up is required.  Call the library at 634-6308.

Capitol Hill’s Holidays @ the Hill event is free and open to the public.  For more information about this or any Metropolitan Library System program, visit the MLS website, www.metrolibrary.org.
