We hope you can spend some time with us here at the library over winter break. Here's a rundown of some of the things we have going on.

1-4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, Dec. 26-29: Legos at the Library. Come to the library during Christmas break and build with Legos. For kids grades K-6. In the children's department.

Dec. 27-29, all day. Harry Potter Escape Room. Take a trip to the world famous school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You and some friends have been given detention by Professor Snape. It's rumored the last student in Snape's detention - a boy from Hufflepuff - was lost and never seen again. You must escape so the same fate does not befall you. You and your friends have 45 minutes to solve all the puzzles and escape from detention!

You don't need to be a Potter fan to participate. Wizards will surely enjoy this immersive experience. This is an all ages, whole community event. Please register at the youth services desk.

4-6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 28: Winter Break Movie Matinee. Come join us for the holiday classic, "Elf"(PG). A make-and take Christmas craft begins at 1 p.m. We'll be having snacks as well! Everyone is invited to attend. Bring the whole family!
