Gingerbread House Decorating Contest
One of the best family activities during the holiday season is getting together and building a gingerbread house, so why not win a local gift card at the same time? From November 1 to December 7, build a gingerbread house at home before bringing it to the library for the contest. Voting will start on December 7 and go until December 21. There will be two winners, with a gift card prize for each!
Holiday Spices Recipe Series
December is the time of year when family comes together for joyous celebrations with lots of good food, so we’ve put some recipe kits together to help. Each week, we will have a spice popularized by the holiday, along with a recipe, for you to pick up at the library. Historical anecdotes, including their Holiday connections, will be included!

Book: Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha Christie
“Christmas Eve, and the Lee family’s reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture and a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed. When Hercule Poirot offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man. . . .” –Amazon.com
