DOVER-FOXCROFT — Ready or not, December is knocking at the door, bringing Christmas gifts and yuletide spirit galore. Thompson Free Library is the place to be, with fun things to do and cool stuff to see (now you know why Tom is our resident poet).

Librarian Michelle Fagan celebrates Hometown Holidays by making two different ornaments with the kids on from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. That same day, be sure to check out the Farmer’s Market (9 a.m.–1 p.m.) downstairs in our Community Meeting Room for some fresh fruits and veggies and delicious homemade treats.

Tuesday, Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. the local Girl Scout troop will give a presentation about their summer trip to Washington, D.C. Stop by to hear interesting stories about their visit to our nation’s capital.

Looking for the perfect inexpensive gift or stocking stuffer? The 10-cent book sale will be held Friday, Dec. 8 from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, Dec. 9 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Browse hundreds of titles and find books (and DVDs) for friends, family,and yourself. Proceeds go to Friends of the Library children’s programs.

Thursday, Dec. 21 at 6 p.m. Michelle Fagan creates a fun and festive environment for the whole family as she reads Christmas books and decorates Christmas cookies. It’s sure to melt the icy heart of any Grinch.

Find a new holiday book by your favorite author or reach for your go-to Christmas classic as we showcase our extensive and varied collection of holiday books and DVDs.

Corinth resident Susan Beardsley, an art teacher, will exhibit her wonderful watercolors during the month. Take a break from your hectic schedule and wander through the “gallery” of her colorful artwork.

December can be a month filled with overbooking, overspending, and overeating. Instead, seek out a familiar and comfortable refuge — the library — an extension of the community and a hub of activity.
