What's new @ the library

‘Tis the season to be jolly! @your Library

The countdown to Christmas has begun and we are all enjoying the festive mood. Bracebridge Public Library has everything to help you prepare for the big day: books brimming with ideas for homemade gifts and crafts, stories to share with the children, movies to watch, magazines to browse for recipes, and even guides on how to survive the holiday rush!

Country Living has published a beautiful new book, edited by Valerie Rains, called Christmas at Home which includes an array of holiday decorating ideas, crafts to make and recipes to enjoy.

Of course, the Christmas season always makes us think of Charles Dickens whose beloved tale of Scrooge is a perennial favourite. While last year we enjoyed Samantha Silva’s great novel Mr. Dickens and his Carol, this year we can all watch the movie The Man Who Invented Christmas, starring our own Canadian actor Christopher Plummer.

You can curl up with the kiddies to read the classics like The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg and How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss but you can also experience some of the new titles at the Library such as Merry Christmas Little Pookie by Sandra Boynton and Deck the Halls: a Canadian Christmas Carol by Helaine Becker.

If you are still looking for stocking stuffers, the Bracebridge Library has charming pewter ornaments for the tree and brand new this year – ceramic Muskoka Library mugs, perfect for hot chocolate! Only $8 each in blue and green (the Library colours).

Happy Holidays Everyone!
