We've put all efforts into making this year's visit with Santa and safe as possible. Families register for a 10 minute time block to share wish lists and chat with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Limit: ten minutes per family

Santa and Mrs. Claus will be inside the library building, wearing their masks and registered families will be outdoors, also wearing masks and social distancing. All interaction will happen through a window. Our scheduling plan will allow families to safely participate one at a time.

Important notes: Masks and social distancing will be heavily enforced and individuals who do not comply will not be permitted to participate. Participants two years and up must wear a mask. For more information about the library's COVID policies for patrons, click here.

Due to space constraints, this program is currently open to Pawling and Holmes residents and their families only, which is why we ask for your address. If space becomes available, we will open the program to a broader audience.
