Chrisman Library News

We had a fine time after the Christmas parade. It was wonderful weather for December and a very fine parade too. Santa came and visited us.
Thank you, Santa! Santa read The Night Before Christmas to 46 kids and they did a very good job of sitting and listening!
Then the kids got to talk to him. The American Legion helped us out by donating money for the kids’ treats.
We were very happy to hand out books, pencils, ornament kits, and treats. Thank you to the parents for bringing their kids! Thank you to those who helped! Merry Christmas!
We just got a big book donation! Thank you to all the people who bring in books whether big or small! It really helps out your small town library!
