(Bring your own camera to take a couple pictures with Santa Claus.) Other events include music entertainment, raffle, craft-making, cookies, and a flower arranging demo.

Come to the Park Ridge Public Library for our Holiday Open House!
 
The Library will be open late tonight from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm for our HOLLY JOLLY OPEN HOUSE! Various events will occur in the Library over the course of the evening, including a craft for children, cookies, entertainment, and a visit with Santa.
 
A Special Note about Santa Claus at the Library:
Santa Claus will arrive in front of the Library by 6:00 p.m. on the fire truck. He will officially open Winterfest with Mayor Maloney and then…NEW THIS YEAR…Santa will walk up the Library’s Candy Cane Lane (the ramp north of our Reading Garden that leads up to the Library’s 2nd floor Touhy entrance/porch) and into the Library’s 2nd floor New Book Room‼ You are asked to bring your own camera to take pictures with Santa Claus.
 
The first hour after Santa’s arrival is VERY BUSY. Because he will be in the Library’s 2nd floor New Book Room until 8:30, we highly recommend enjoying some refreshments and live music for a while before braving the Santa Claus line. Your wait will be much shorter!
 
Please follow the directions given by Santa’s helpers on where to stand in line. Because of fire code regulations, and to ensure that visitors will have access to the service desk, we need to keep the line moving towards the back of the department.
 
We encourage you to bring your own camera if you want to take pictures with Santa Claus. However, please be courteous to those who are waiting in line behind you and don’t take too many.
 
A schedule of events can be found on the Library's website (link is below) www.parkridgelibrary.org as the date draws near.
 
Other highlights of the Open House include:
  • Celtic sounds and holiday favorites by the Dooley Brothers sponsored by the Friends of the Library (performances from 6:15 -7:00 p.m. and 7:30 - 8:15 p.m. in the first floor meeting room)
  • Christmas caroling by Willow Academy Chamber Choir and Emerson Middle School (first and second floor)

 We hope you will join us for the festivities!!
