12/05/14- Annual Tree Lighting

Christmas may seem like a long way away, but our annual tree lighting ceremony will take place in just over a month. There have been some changes made to the tree lighting this year, so read the following carefully and let the librarian know if anything is unclear!

On Friday, December 5th the Readfield Community Library will be holding it’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at 6:30 PM. Help us celebrate the season with your favorite Holiday songs, led by the MCS Singers. Afterwards, we’ll be walking down to the 2nd Floor of the Town Office (it will be dark. So bringing a flashlight is a good idea!) for cookies, cocoa, and a very special guest. This is an all ages event. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there.
