The LRC Celebrates the Holidays

The LRC staff was extremely happy to be a part of the Winter Read and Treat, Tuesday, December 8, 2015. The A.L.E.C. club had agreed to participate in reading to the children for the Read and Treat but due to a two-hour delay because of fog not all the A.L.E.C. members could be present for the Read and Treat event. The library staff stepped in and helped Mrs. Wiggins prepare for the children from area Daycares to arrive for the Read and Treat. There were around fifteen (15) children in all. Dean Mitchell, Mrs. Burkett, Mrs. Gatling and Ms. Moore helped choose music and videos for the children.

Ms. Moore read “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” to the children. Two A.L.E.C. club members (Lydia Murphy and Elysha Pace) played the Grinch. They met, greeted and gave candy to the children along with Santa. Mrs. Burkett came up with a very creative face mask for the A.L.E.C. club members to wear as the Grinch. The LRC staff also helped decorated the Library for the holiday season. Seeing the childrens faces meeting the Grinch and Santa Claus was pure delight! LRC Staff and the A.L.E.C. club would like to wish everyone a joyous and happy holiday season.
