Some things never go out of style, like the time-honoured tradition of curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace as a way to relax during the hectic festive season.
The Richmond Public Library is the perfect source to check out a favourite title, new or old. And throughout the month of December and into early January, the library also has many free family-friendly events planned for the holidays giving you a break from all the hustle and bustle.
The main Brighouse branch kicks off the festivities with a string instrument concert by the Richmond Delta Youth Orchestra on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 10:30 a.m. And don't miss the opportunity to check out the Thursday, Dec. 13 feature. At 4 p.m., Winter Wonderland: A Holiday Celebration will feature a puppet show, sing-along, green screen photo booth, games and a self-guided Storywalk.
The library's smaller branches will reflect the holiday spirit too. On Tuesday, Dec. 4 or Thursday, Dec. 13, visit Ironwood for Cozy Storytime at 7 p.m.
Steveston is offering a winter sing-along on Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 4 p.m., while Cambie has winter-themed writing games and stories on Thursday, Jan. 3 at 3:30 p.m.
The library will also be holding a reading challenge throughout the winter break. Participants in The 14 Days of Reading are encouraged to pick up an activity list at any branch starting Dec. 21 and complete the challenge for a chance to win book prizes.
