December events at Bradford Public Library


BRADFORD – The Holidays are around the corner and there is still of time to make memories with family and friends. Bradford Public Library hopes to be part of your family’s activities. Here is what they have planned for December.

Their Lego Village is complete and set up in our display case. Come in to admire the children’s hard work. Be sure to look for the “Imposter in the Village.” Find the Lego character that does not belong in the wintry scene and enter for a chance to win a Lego set at the beginning of the year. A new “imposter” will be hidden each Monday in December. The contest is for children 12 and under; one entry per child each week.

They have crafts set up for children, too. Come in to make an ornament or help add to the paper chain that is growing around the tree in the Children’s area. Various crafts will be added through the month.

On Thursday, Dec. 12, they will have their STEAM workshop for homeschoolers from 10:15-11:30. They will start a new Dale Chihuly inspired light fixture for the library.
