---- — ATKINSON — There’s still time to sign up for the ‘Holiday Drop ‘n Shop’ on Sat., December 8 as well as Sat., December 15. For two hours we will entertain your children with a movie, craft, and some stories. Registration is limited so please sign up early to avoid disappointment.
Details for the third ‘Holiday Drop ‘n Shop’ on Sat., December 15, from 10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., are as follows: On the second day of Shop and Drop the elves have whispered to me... “Let’s make a holiday themed tile decoration!” Santa’s elves will be helping your children make this beautiful item. The Elves will bring all the supplies to make a holiday scene on tile then seal it with some sparkling modge podge. If you or your child would like to see a sample, please drop by the library and see the craft on display in our lobby.
The movie selected for the December 15 “Drop ‘n Shop” is “Annabelle’s Wish”. This heart-gladdening holiday story tells of a calf and a troubled young boy who exchange their most impassioned Christmas wishes. “Annabelle’s Wish” is narrated by Randy Travis, and carries a holiday message of grace, goodness, and hope. The assortment of characters will appeal to preschoolers, but the message of decency and friendship is ideal for grade-schoolers. This movie runs for approximately 53 minutes.
