It’s that time again!!! Join APL’s Kid’s Staff and Santa for a special morning of fun! We have lots for kids 18 months – 8 years old to do…make a special Holiday Ornament, hear Holiday Stories, decorate your very own cookie in our Cookie Cottage, play in the Penguin Pool, color some holiday art, and, of course, VISIT WITH SANTA CLAUS!!! Don’t forget to bring your camera! Admission is free courtesy of our Friends of the Library but, we would like to help our friends at the Augusta Caring Center so please bring a non-perishable food item to donate. Space & supplies are limited so reservations are required. Beginning Monday, November 25th at 9:30 am, we’ll start taking reservations for your choice of our 9:30 am or our 11:00 am sessions. Each session lasts approximately 1 hour. Children must bring an adult helper.
“What’s happening in Augusta?” is going to be a new feature on our website, www.augustapubliclibrary.com
and we need your help to keep it current and vital. If your church, organization, or other group is having an event, we would like to …post it. We are not looking for the weekly Bible study or exercise class, but an annual or special event, i.e. Trick or Treat Street, The Chili Cook-Off or Cemetery Tours. Please send your event with vital information (who, what where, when and how) to email@example.com
It will be a running list. Thank you for your cooperation in finding out what is happening in Augusta!
