First, tonight teens can make beautiful origami ornaments to take along and use as holiday gifts.

Teens in grades six through eight will have a chance to sip hot cocoa and wrap holiday gifts on Wednesday December 19th. The library will have supplies on hand to create some original last minute gifts too. This last minute gift program will be from 6:30 PM to 7:15 PM.
