Chrisman Library News

We had a nice visit from Santa the other Wednesday night. He was looking well and even younger than last year!
The kids came in after the Christmas parade and got to listen to him read the Night Before Christmas poem.
They then had a little chat with him individually and headed home! It was fun! We had over forty kids here and at least that many parents!
We want to take a minute to thank the Shakespeare Club for their gift. They decided to not exchange gifts among themselves, but to give to the library! Thank you!
We have cookbooks for sale. You probably already have one, BUT they would make a wonderful, unique Christmas present for someone else.
They are only $10 and very nice looking. With over 300 recipes, they are a bargain!
For the hectic and busy holidays, here is an easy recipe from the cookbook.
STRAWBERRY TWINKIE DESSERT
2 (6 oz.) pkg strawberry jello
14 Twinkies
2 c hot water
32 oz. Frozen strawberries, thawed
Cool Whip
Put the Twinkies in a 9×13 pan. Mix together jello, water, and strawberries. Pour over Twinkies in pan. Let set in refrigerator. Spread with Cool Whip. Garnish with whole strawberries. (submitted by Harriet Graves)
