Christmas Stockings for Children at Hancock Hope House

On November 21, we decorated 40 stockings. Due to the generous donations of stocking stuffers by our teens and their families, we even had enough to stuff them all.

 

The decorated stockings lined up to dry.

 

Bags of stocking stuffers ready to be stuffed into some stockings.

 

Today (12/11/17), I delivered the stuffed stockings to the Hancock Hope House. Cindy said that any stockings that are not used at the Hope House will be given to kids at the soup kitchen.

A huge thank you to those of you who came out to decorate and donated items to put in the stockings. You have brought some Christmas joy to a child this season!

It’s December!

12-3-15-Teen-Hot-Chocolate-600px

Today (12/4) is our Hot Chocolate Holiday Party from 4-6 p.m.! We’ll have a hot chocolate bar complete with all the hot chocolate fixings to make an over-the-top-awesome drink that would put Starbucks to shame. Cookies and other tasty treats will also be provided. The group will vote on a holiday classic to watch for a stack of movies including: The Nightmare Before Christmas, Elf, & A Christmas Story. An optional festive stocking craft can be completed while watching the movie. Stockings left in the Teen Room will get an extra treat. As always, everything is free.

See you at 4!

Happy New Year!!!

 

See you all in 2015!!

This Week in a Photo

It’s the 2nd week of December, and it’s going to be a big one at HCPL. 🙂

I’m sure you’ve all been dying of anticipation for Guardians of the Galaxy to come out on DVD like me, AND the day is finally almost upon us TOMORROW (12/9)!!! To celebrate this joyous occasion, we will be throwing a costume/ DVD release party in Greenfield. Come dressed as your favorite GOTG character or other Marvel character (school appropriate, please), vote on your favorite costume, and watch the movie. This event will make you leave saying, “I am Groot!”

The next day (Wed. Dec. 10) will be full of fluffy fun at our DIY Tube Animal Pillow program! Perfect as a holiday present or as a gift to yourself, these fleecy pillow pals are the perfect prop for late-night reading. By popular request we will be watching The Polar Express while we make our pillows, so expect hot chocolate too!

And as an on-going event, please make an ornament for our teen room tree! I have plenty of sonic screwdrivers, Tardis, Homestuck characters, Batmans, Rocket and Groots, etc. I will print ornaments by request as well – Just ask.

Have an awesome week. See you at the library!
