Happings at the Ligonier Valley Library

December has arrived in full force, with snow falling and Christmas lights twinkling. The Ligonier library has some fun events for you to enjoy this month!

Mystery Book Discussion & Lunch - Our mystery/thriller book discussion group, Death in the Stacks, will meet on Friday, December 3, from 11:30 am to 12:50 pm for their discussion & lunch. We'll be discussing the book "Bone by Bone" by Carol O'Connell. Bring your own lunch, we'll provide drinks and a snack
and/or dessert.

Tree Decorating & Christmas Party - Join us to help decorate the library's Christmas tree. While we have hundreds of ornaments ready to go, participants are welcome to add to the collection. After the decorating, Mrs. Norris will read seasonal stories... and Santa may even stop by for a visit! Refreshments will be served.

Games Day - Our last one for the year, our next Games Day will be on Saturday, December 18, from 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. Norm Flam of the Toy Soldier Gallery is hosting the Games Day series at the Ligonier Valley Library. Kids of various ages and experience levels play games such as Flames of War™ (a World War II miniature game) and Warhammer 40,000™ (a futuristic science fiction game). Bring your own lunch and snacks. Prizes will be awarded to the winners. Contact Norm at Toy Soldier Gallery with any questions, 724-238-0324.
