This Week at the Carnegie: Dec.16-20

Tis’ the season for all things holiday! Have you stopped by to see our Carnegie Christmas tree? This year’s theme is origami, and each ornament as well as the star topper were handcrafted by our patrons, volunteer Ada, and our librarian Elizabeth. This week is also our annual Cookie Swap with the added fun of a book tasting. Don’t worry, no books will be consumed during this program. Check out all of the great programs we have below. We hope to see you soon!
