View Calendar
Oct/Mon/2020 - Nov/Mon/2020 All day

Time to show up for your favorite characters! Did you know that for the last two months, youth in our community have put together nominations for the next President of the Library Books?  Well, now it's time to vote for the winners!

Help us pick which characters you think would make the best leader! Visit https://www.pawlingfreelibrary.org/election/ to vote, from October 26 - November 3. One winner will be chosen for the Children's division (Ages 5-10) and one for the Teen division (Ages 11-18). Winners will be announced November 3.

The president of the library is a leader, chosen by popular vote, who is in charge of all of the other book characters in the library. To win the President of the Library election, a character must be nominated by a teen or child. Each participant has written a platform for their selected character that describes the characters beliefs and what they would do as president. Anyone is eligible to vote.

    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.
