Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the 6th Annual Polar Express heading to the West Palm Beach Public Library! We can’t wait for it to reach our station! The magic begins this Friday, December 4th at 5:30. Catch a train to the North Pole where you can meet Santa, listen to a good reindeer joke, and play reindeer games! While you’re there don’t forget to decorate a yummy cookie and warm your insides with a cup hot cocoa! Join the fun in the West Palm Beach Public Library, City Center Courtyard.
If you have a little extra to spare this season, help us fill Santa’s sack with your donation of new unwrapped toys for needy children and spread some holiday cheer! Call the Children’s Library at 561-868-7703 for additional information!
We can’t wait to see your merry faces this Friday!
I am so excited that our November/December 2009 calendar of events is available. Be sure to stop by the West Palm Beach Public Library’s webpage and take a peek. We have some cool events that will surely get you up, out, and moving! One of the events that I am particularly fond of is Monday Night Movies. It’s a great family fun event that can become a tradition. All movies are not suitable for the young ones, but if you have a few children that are in different age groups, you can always spend time alone with each seeing a great FREE movie suitable for them. Here are the list of movies for November/December2009:
Transformers (PG-13) Nov. 2
Ice Age 3 (PG) Nov. 9
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (PG-13) Nov. 16
Polar Express (G) Nov. 30
Star Trek (PG-13) Dec. 7
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (PG-13) Dec. 14
My Sister’s Keeper (PG-13) Dec. 21
G-Force (PG) Dec. 28
It’s always better to read the book first, so be sure to check them out at the West Palm Beach Public Library or reserve them online through our Catalog.
Until we meet again,
