GREENVILLE – Patrons can join the annual holiday cookie extravaganza from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Greenville Public Library.

As always there will be tables full of cookies, punch and coffee plus live music provided by a string quartet and flutist Nancy Jackson. Santa and Mrs. Claus also will attend. Kids can get their picture taken with them for free.

The Friends of the Library also will have many Christmas books available at their Continuous Booksale in the Computer Room of the library. They have books of all genres.

The Friends are a volunteer group who raise money for the benefit of the Greenville Public Library. They sponsor the summer reading program including the entertainment for Family Fun Day each year as well as purchase expensive items outside the budget. Recently they bought a portable stage and additional puppets for the GPL Puppeteers.
