Prepare for the Holidays at Your Library
Winter Card Wonderland
With December upon us, the library is happy to offer two programs to help you prepare for the holiday season. Add a personal touch to your holiday greeting cards by making them yourself during our “Winter Card Wonderland.” Paper craft hobbyist Margaret Gonzalez will demonstrate stamping and embossing techniques as you create two of your own greeting cards and a gift card holder. Ages 15 and older. Please call your library to register.

Holiday Tech Talk
Electronic devices like tablets, smartphones, digital cameras and e-readers are likely to be on your loved ones’ wish lists. Be a wiser gift giver by attending “Holiday Tech Talk” at the Columbia Public Library on Saturday, December 3 at 9:30 a.m. Librarians and gadget geeks Brandy Sanchez and Kirk Henley will share library resources that can help you make an informed decision when buying a device, and might even save you money.
