It’s Christmastime and Santa wants to hear from you. So stop in to the library now (until December 20) and write your letter to Santa with all your Christmas wishes on it. Make sure you address the back of the paper when you fold it, so we can deliver it to the North Pole for you. Slip it into our special letters to Santa mailbox at the circulation desk. Open to all ages; young and old.
