Storytime with Santa

For the past few weeks, library staff has been hanging out with Santa on Wednesday mornings at Sierra Vista Mall for Storytime with Santa.

Santa has been kind enough to take a break from his hectic holiday schedule to give a storytime for mall-goers.  As it turns out, Santa is not only good at listening to what kids want for Christmas and posing for adorable pictures; he's also good at reading stories!  After Santa read a couple of books to a captivated audience, we invited everyone to do a holiday craft with us.

Along with the craft, we brought a pop-up library of winter and holiday books for people to check out, and we made library cards for those who didn't have one yet.

 It was so fun to decorate popsicle-stick snowflakes and paper-plate Santas with everyone, and help parents pick out some books to take home.  Storytime with Santa was a success!

If you're looking for an opportunity to take a picture with Santa, check out this flyer to see when he may be coming to a library branch near you.
