Browser: 'Tis the season

Body: 

Friends and neighbors!

'Tis the season. Mostly it is the season to stay warm, get together with friends and family, and bake stuff.

Our library bake sale is scheduled to align with Pine River's holiday shop in town day and the Parade of Lights and fireworks. It will be Dec. 9 during library open hours. Bake something. The process helps warm your home and fills it with lovely smells.

If you choose not to bake and donate your goods, come in and enjoy the baked goods of others. Proceeds will benefit the library. The library will also be having a small cookbook sale at the same time.

We all win!

Just so you know, the library will be closed Saturday, Dec. 23, and Monday, Dec. 25. We hope all of you enjoy your holiday season with those you love. We wish to make sure our staff has that same opportunity.

The season of lights corresponds with the shortest days of the year. Light a fire or a candle. Celebrate whatever holiday you choose. Above all, be joyful and hopeful, for a new year is fast approaching.

I remain,
