The children at the Sharon Public Library were excited to see Santa when he made his visit to the Library on Dec. 3.
We have been very busy at the library the past couple of weeks. We are loading up the shelves with new books some titles includes James Patterson, J.D. Robb and Nicholas Sparks just to name a few.
The story times this month are all about Christmas. Don’t forget to give the gift of reading this year by supporting your local libraries. “The Last 100 Years of Sharon” would make a wonderful Christmas gift. This past week we had a visit from Santa. The children each received a photo with Santa and candy canes.
