Hi there! Can you believe it’s already December? I sure can’t! To wrap up the year, here are few things going on in Adult Services…

St. Jude’s Recycled Card Program
December 1-31 during library hours
What better way to give back this holiday season then by participating in St. Jude’s recycled card program? Year-round, St. Jude’s happily accepts used all-occasion greeting cards and we would like to contribute! So throughout the month of December, please bring in any unwanted greeting cards and add them to our collection basket, and we’ll take care of the rest. At the end of the month, we’ll mail them to St. Jude’s Ranch for Children where they’ll be repurposed to raise money to support programs and services for abused, neglected and homeless children, young adults and families. Please be aware that St. Jude’s is unable to accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards. For a complete list of rules,  stop by the Adult/Teen Services Desk and ask for Nicole.

Sounds of the Season with Tom Conner

Crafter’s Corner
Tuesday, December 16 at 6 p.m.
Calling all crafters! From homemade gift tags to embellishments that add that personal touch, learn how to dress your holiday gifts in style. All materials provided, but space is limited. Register in advance beginning December 1.

Cookie Exchange
Wednesday, December 17 at 6 p.m.
Back by popular demand! The North Canton Public Library will be hosting a cookie exchange on December 17 at 6 p.m. Bake three dozen of your favorite cookies to share and spend the evening sampling each others’ festive holiday treats. Don’t forget to bring a copy of your recipe as well as a container to take home goodies. Registration is requested and will take place at ncantonlibrary.com beginning December 3.

Aside from that, there are quite a few books hitting the big screen in the next couple months. Ones that I’m personally excited about include:

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand
Wild by Cheryl Strayed
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Insurgent by Veronica Roth

It’s always interesting to see what kind of artistic license the director takes when bringing books to life. If you watch any of the aforementioned movies and you’ve also read the book, you’ll have to stop by Adult Services and let us know what you think. Until next time!
