A Joyful Wish From Your Library Staff

Twas the day before Christmas
And quiet as a mouse
The library was closed
All shut up like a house

The books were all safe
Upon their steel and wood shelves
The librarians had tucked them away
Like Santa's little elves

The Christmas trees had been decorated
The Christmas stories had been read
The cookies had been eaten
And the librarians were ready for bed

The packages were all delivered
New books anxiously awaited
To be cataloged and processed
Our joy could hardly be abated

The library patrons were all gone
Having taken their books and movies
Home to enjoy over their Christmas vacations
Along with their yum-oh hams and turkeys

Outside the snow fell
All pretty and white
Like a snow globe village
Our town all joyful and quiet

With a winkle and a whisper
sleigh bells jingled in the air
With a HO HO HO and a twinkle
Santa flew here and there

But other sounds joined in that night
Of Christmas bells and songs of joy
Of parents reading stories to little children
A sense of well-being and happy employ

We hope that no matter your religion or beliefs
You take a moment to reflect on those you hold dear
To be thankful for family and good friends
To find peace, love, joy and happiness through the year!

We hope you enjoy a safe and happy holiday season!!!

The Ligonier Valley Library will be closed December 24 & 25.
We will re-open at 10:00 am on Monday, December 27.
