One thing that I always enjoy seeing around the holidays is lonely trees on the side of the road that have been decorated with garland and ornaments. I have seen two such sightings this year. One is on the right hand side by the bridge between the soccer building, before entering The Colony. The other is on the right hand side of the bridge when driving out of Lewisville on I-35 going across Lake Lewisville before you get into Lake Dallas. If you have seen any others, please share. Speaking of trees, we finally got our tree up this weekend. I guess this means I get to leave it up until the middle of January. I would like to know if anyone else has had a late start getting their tree up or have just decided not to have a tree at all this year.
One gift that lasts forever is the gift of reading. The Friends of the Little Elm Library and the Little Elm Public Library are partnering together to start Adult Basic Literacy Classes on Tuesday, January 5th. The classes will be held on Tuesdays from 6:30pm-8pm at the Little Elm Library and on Thursdays from 6:30pm-8pm at Button Memorial United Methodist Church. Call the library at 214-975-0430 for more information, class registration, or to volunteer to help. Registration is required to attend classes that are available for ages 18 and older.
I know that everyone is getting ready for the holiday so I will keep this brief by saying that our library staff wishes you and your family and friends a very safe and happy holiday. Remember that the library will be closed Thursday, December 24th through Sunday December 27th. So that you can plan ahead for your reading and listening pleasure, the library will be open Monday, December 28th and Wednesday, December 30th from 10am-5:30pm. On Tuesday, December 29th the hours will be 10am-8pm. The library will closed early on Thursday, December 31st at 6pm and will not reopen again until Monday, January 4th at 10am.
