Ossian Hometown Christmas

Well_Red-Christmas Tree-Ossian.jpgThe Ossian Branch Library participated in the Ossian Hometown Christmas on Friday, December 6th. The event ran from 5 to 7:30 PM and featured food, fun and decorations. We had over 300 visitors during the evening! Check out photos on Facebook from the event.

The night started with caroling and the lighting of the town Christmas tree at the Branch. The Branch also entered a Christmas tree entitled "Well Read" in the tree contest. The tree was decorated with red boas, miniature books, paper ornaments made from the pages of books, cardinals and red decorative picks. Groups of ribbon-wrapped books sat under the tree and a "book" chair sat beside it complete with a red blanket, a cup of hot cocoa and some red slippers. Staff member Angela Jaworski deserves much of the credit for the tree, but she was assisted by other staff members. We were excited to find out on Monday that our entry won 1st place in the contest!

I’m Susan Dailey, the manager of the Ossian Branch Library. I’ve worked at the library since I was in high school. (In fact, I received my first library paycheck before my driver’s license!) I’m also a “minor celebrity” to the kids in Ossian because I read books to the preschoolers and kindergartners each month. I've written two books for librarians with ideas for storytime and have taught workshops on the topic around the country.
