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!
