Good Reads: Celebrate Christmas at the Maple Ridge library

Many fun and festive activities for the whole family to help bring out the Christmas spirit.

Come and celebrate Christmas at the Maple Ridge library.

This month, we have many fun and festive activities for the whole family to help bring out the Christmas spirit.

Dec. 6, at 7 p.m., join us for our annual Adult Evening Christmas Celebration. Local choir The Silvertones will be performing your favourite Christmas carols, and there will be lots of yummy treats and refreshments to help get the season underway.

We will also have Christmas stories read by special guests from our own community.

For some holiday magic for the whole family, join us on Dec. 5 at 6:45 p.m. for our Christmas Countdown, an evening of holiday songs, rhymes, stories and a special Christmas puppet show.

If you are looking to give the book lover on your list an amazing new read this year, we have lots of ideas and suggestions for you.
