It’s holiday time again.

Are you coming to the Downtown Christmas events on Friday and Saturday? Your library is joining in the holiday fun along with all the other downtown businesses. Stop by the library on Friday and make a sparkly snowflake ornament in our kids’ room. Who doesn’t like glitter glue? And on Saturday morning at 11, there will be a special Christmas story time. We hope to see you there.

Not only do we have family gatherings, special meals and presents to look forward to, but hopefully time on the couch, or soaking in the tub, or even riding in the car to the grandfolks’ house to enjoy some holiday-themed reading.

Better Homes and Gardens, Campbell’s and that domestic goddess Betty Crocker all have Christmas cookbooks books to help you with that huge family feast. Cookie swap at work? Potluck at church? There’s a book for that! Plus, you can always read “The RBG Workout” by Bryant Johnson afterward to help work off any extra cookie calories. He’s the personal trainer for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg.

Not only do we have a ton of Christmas-focused cookbooks, we also have craft and decorating books to help turn your home into a winter wonderland. We’ve used some of these books’ ideas and our handy AccuCut machine to decorate our front window for the holiday window decorating contest and the library’s Christmas tree for the annual Parade of Trees. We can show you how to make some cute, easy decorations for your own celebration.

And some of our favorite authors have given us their annual Christmas offerings, as well. Debbie Macomber and Linda Lael Miller are known for their charming holiday-themed titles. Take a look at Macomber’s “Merry & Bright,” as well as Miller’s “Snow County Christmas” and Sarah Morgan’s “Miracle on 5th Avenue,” among others.

We’ll see you at your library!

Jenny White is director of Schuyler Public Library.
