On Saturday, December 1st, 2012 the Palm Springs Public Library will celebrate the finale of the Fall Into Reading—For the Thrills & Chills month-long reading program. Beginning at 10:00 a.m. kids will have the opportunity to write letters to Santa, work on holiday crafts to take home or to add to the Library’s youth room decorations and play reading trivia. From 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a special appearance to receive the children’s letters in-person and to hear their wish lists. Santa will give out candy canes and pose for pictures with the children if their parents bring their own cameras.
This celebration will bring the month-long reading program to a close and the final weekly prize basket drawings for each of the categories: pre-K, K-5th grades, 6th-12th grades and adult winners will be drawn from the completed entries. ALL AGES were invited to participate in the reading program which included activities, special events, weekly prize baskets and of course reading! This program was part of a year-long focus on reading which also included a Spring Into Reading program during the month of April and D-I-Y Summer Reading this summer from June to July.
At the end of that same day the Library will participate in the Festival of Lights Parade. Some library staff will perform in a book cart drill team celebrating the books and movies of the holiday season! The library entry will also feature special celebrity guest Manny-the-Movie-Guy.
