This event is free and open to the public--no registration required. Stop in and join us!
The library and Sunflour Bakery have partnered to take family bonding time to the next level. These gingerbread kits include a gingerbread house, plus everything you'll need to put together and decorate your creation.
Due to demand, we are currently limiting kits to one per family.
Kits are for families with youth 18 years old or under. The kits must be picked up from the library during our regular operating hours. Our staff will email you when kits are ready, sometime during the week of 12/8-12/15. The frosting, cookies, and candy may contain gluten, eggs, and dairy. The kits are nut free, but some candy may be made in a nut environment.
Get ready to bundle up and share your wish lists! Our annual visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus is ON! To keep all involved as safe as possible, families will visit outside under a tent, one at time, while Santa and Mrs. Claus stay inside and chat through an open window. This set-up was a huge hit last year and we know Santa and Mrs. Claus look forward to visiting Pawling. Registration for 10 minute windows is highly recommended, as walk-ins will be permitted only as space is available.
The Board of Trustees will hold their monthly meeting in the Library Annex beginning at 6:45 pm. Members of the public are welcome.
