Happy holidays from Siuslaw Public Library! Got friends and family coming to town? Consider checking out a board game to play together! Or a cookbook to try out a new cookie recipe or fancy cocktail. Or a hiking guidebook, to get out and explore.

Our annual gingerbread house decorating party is coming up on December 14. It's always a fun, popular event for all ages. If you need holiday cards, the Friends of Siuslaw Public Library have just restocked the rack with handmade cards made from recycled books.

Please note that we'll have holiday hours for Christmas and New Year's Day (see below).

Are you participating in the 2019 Siuslaw Reading Challenge? Don't forget to turn in your completed punch card by January 5 at the reference desk to get into the grand prize drawing for a Kindle! We'll be announcing the themes for our 2020 challenge soon.
See you at the library!

December's theme is: short stories.
