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 Pools, 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 if you are able.   Space & supplies are limited so reservations are required.  Beginning Monday, November 24th at 9:30 am, we’ll start taking reservations for your choice of our 9:30 am or our 11:00 am session.  Each session lasts approximately 1 hour.  Children must bring an adult helper.
