LIBRARY CORNER: December is the perfect time for books, and the Library! | Opinion - Bemidji Pioneer

Cyndi L. Fenske, a Library Board Member inform, It's time to treasure the last month of the year! Sometimes winter gets a bad reputation (and for sure it has earned it), but there are some good things about it, too.

Skiing and snowshoeing, white-coated balsam, pine-scented homes and twinkle light glow. More time indoors can also mean more time reading! Picture yourself wrapped up snug in a fuzzy blanket, wool socks warming your toes, a hot cup of coffee or tea or cocoa steaming beside you as you become acquainted with new characters, revisit old friends or take on non-fiction ideas to ponder. The Bemidji Public Library has many materials waiting to be consumed and a few activities and programs for your delight.

The library offers three book clubs for different ages. The Monthly Book Discussion for adults takes place on Monday, Dec. 10 at noon. For information on December's selection please ask a library staff member. On Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 3:30 p.m., the Kid's Book Club meets to discuss "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis, (which is one of my favorite novels, and always reminds me of winter). Books for this discussion can be checked out at the Library Circulation desk. Later on, the following Tuesday, Dec. 18, at 5:30 p.m., the YA Book Club will be discussing Louisa May Alcott's classic novel "Little Women."...

On Monday, Dec. 31, at 10:30 a.m., Robert the Magician returns for "Frosty's Birthday Party" magic show! This program is in collaboration with other New Year's Eve events going on that day downtown.
