Frozen Sing-A-Long Extravaganza!

Join us for a magical afternoon as we watch (and sing along to) the Sing-Along version of Walt Disney Studios© Frozen. Come as you are, or even better—come dressed as your favorite Frozencharacter. Bring a cushion or blanket to sit on and arrive by 2 p.m. to snap a picture in the photo booth. A winter-themed, make-or-take craft will be available before the start of the movie at 2:15 p.m. Magical snowflake wands will be provided for participants under 12 years old. Children under 9 years old must be accompanied at all times by a caregiver age 12 or older.  Don’t forget to stop by the Circulation Desk to see our very own Olaf made from books! Sunday, December 11.

Polar Express Family Pajama Story Time

Come wearing your favorite pajamas for a story time the whole family can enjoy. Starting at 7 p.m., every family member will get a train ticket to ride the Polar Express and to do a winter craft.  Get your ticket stamped and hop in a train seat to listen to the beloved holiday classic The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg. Chocolate milk and cookies will be available for cash sale; proceeds benefit TCPL’s youth programs. This event, sponsored by Friends of The Colony Public Library, will include a door prize drawing and a photo booth.  Children under 9 years old must be accompanied at all times by a caregiver age 12 or older.  This event will take place in both the JF Area and Story Time Corner. Wednesday, December 14.
