Saturday, December 6th, the Southborough Library will be rockin’ (around the Christmas tree.)

For adults, refreshments and holiday music help make the upstairs festive for the season. They can also watch families hanging newly made ornaments on the Library’s tree.

And it’s the tree trimming that’s the real draw each year.┬áThat morning, kids in town are invited to make their own ornaments to hang.

The kids party takes place downstairs. There the Children’s Room and Eaton Room (back meeting room) are filled with craft stations.

For some, the real highlights are the candy canes and kids refreshments handed out in the Eaton Room.

It’s the perfect launching pad for Santa Day. Families head to the library for the party, then cross the street at noon to watch the helicopter landing on St. Mark’s field.

The adult open house runs 10:30 – 2:00 pm.

Both are sponsored by The Friends of the Southborough Library. The group will be holding its annual Holiday Book & Bag Sale that day from 10:30 – 2:30. (Stay tuned for more details on that.)
