Pike Road Library Announces December Programs!!

Pike Road Branch Library’s December 2017 Programs

Special Event: Holiday Open House – Wednesday, December 6 – 4 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.

The Friends of the Pike Road Branch Library host our annual Holiday Open House featuring crafts, refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus! Grown-ups should bring their cameras for photo opportunities with Santa. This is a drop-in event so families may arrive any time between 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m.

Storybook Time – for age three through six – Mondays at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

At Storybook Time, we sing a few songs, read one or two picture books and make a craft. We will read the same books at 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Here is what we have planned for this month:

  • December 4 – Bear just wants to sleep. It is winter time, after all, and that is what bears do. His friends, however, have other plans for his evening. Can Bear stay up for Christmas? All will be revealed in Bear Stays Up for Christmas by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman.
  • December 11 – “Oh, gobble, gobble!” Turkey survived Thanksgiving, but lots of folks like to eat turkey for Christmas dinner, too. Can this master (not really) of disguise trick his way out of being the main course for two consecutive holidays? We’ll find out when we read Turkey Claus by Wendi Silvano and Lee Harper.
  • December 18 – Christmas is ONE WEEK AWAY and we’re excited! The characters in today’s stories are excited, too…maybe a little too excited. Teddy keeps asking, “Is It Christmas Yet?” in a book by Jane Chapman and Llama Llama just needs to calm down in Llama Llama Holiday Drama by Anna Dewdney.


Toddler Time – for age one through three – Wednesdays at 10 a.m.

At Toddler Time, we sing songs, recite nursery rhymes and read one story each week. The dates will be:

  • December 6
  • December 13
  • December 20

NOTE: We will NOT have Toddler Time on December 27.

Book Clubs

Book Maniaks – for children in third grade and up –On Wednesday, December 13 at 4:15 p.m., the Maniaks will discuss The Horse and His Boy by C.S. Lewis.

  • Publisher’s Summary – On a desperate journey, two runaways meet and join forces. Though they are only looking to escape their harsh and narrow lives, they soon find themselves at the center of a terrible battle. It is a battle that will decide their fate and the fate of Narnia itself.
