Santa’s first stop will be on Thursday December 6th at the Coastal Region Branch from 10:30am to 11:30am. There will be no shortage of songs and stories; children can make a craft and receive a special surprise. Santa will be available to listen to wishes and take photos.
On Tuesday December 11th at the Lakes Region Branch from 6pm to 7pm Santa will be attending a special “Stories with Santa”, featuring holiday stories and songs.
