Santa’s Workshop at Buffalo Library, Saturday, December 8th

Santa’s Workshop at the Buffalo Library!
After the Buffalo Christmas parade, bring the kids and come craft with us! There will also be music and stories!

Baking Spirits Bright

Be sure to mark your calendar for Thursday, December 13 for the Main Library’s Baking Spirits Bright event. We hope to warm up the night with special events for kids and adults, all centered around the sweet treats we like to enjoy this time of year.

For adults, we will have a gingerbread house contest. You may compete as a team or an individual. Bring your already-decorated gingerbread house in during operating hours between Monday and the beginning of the event to be viewed by the public. Entries will be judged and a winner declared at the Baking Spirits Bright event.

Children in attendance will be allowed to decorate their own gingerbread cookie with supplies provided. These will not be judged, simply eaten.

Please join us for a festive evening with warm hearts and sweet treats!
