Christmas Express Kids Shopping Experience

December 15, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Give your children an opportunity to discover the joy of giving at one of two events! It is a chance for your child to “buy” a gift for 2 family members. To participate, each child must complete the activities required for each age group listed below. Once the child completes their activities, they will receive their ticket to enter the Christmas Express shopping experience. There will be gifts available to choose from that will be tailored to all ages. Our Christmas Express helpers will help each child pick out a gift and then wrap and tag it. 15-minute reservations will be taken for these events. Registration will begin after Thanksgiving and more information will be available at the front desk at that time.

For children ages Kindergarten to 3rd grade:

Thursday, December 15 from 4:30-7 PM
To participate in this event, children must check out a holiday book, write a letter to Santa, write a thank you postcard to their mail carrier, and take a photo in our Christmas Express train. At this event, parents can wait in the Community Room or enjoy the library while your child shops, but we do ask that they remain in the building.

For preschool age children with their parent or caregiver:

Friday, December 16 from 9:00-11:30 AM
To participate in this event, preschool age children need to write a letter to Santa and take a picture in our Christmas Express Train. Parent/caregivers are encouraged to help their preschool age children with selecting a gift.
