Krissa Coleman column: 'Double Our Donation' campaign has begun

We are thrilled to host you and your family for our holiday event 5:30-7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11 at the library. Celebrate the season by taking pictures with Santa, enjoy cider and cookies, make and take crafts and live music with Joyful Brass. It is always a night of joy and great memories! Feel free to invite your neighbors for a free night out on the town.

Our "Double Our Donation" campaign has officially begun. We recently received a $25,000 donation for our library parking lot so efforts are in full swing to match that amount in hopes of retiring this debt. The library is an integral part of the larger community and as members of that community, we have a great opportunity to show our support by matching this amazing gift.

To start this "Double the Donation" campaign, the library board has personally pledged $1,500. Your financial help helps everyone. Please mail or drop off a check payable to the Hazel Mackin Community Library. Feel free to contact any board member if you questions. Information is available at

Story Time: Mondays and Wednesdays, from 10:30-11:15 a.m. Bring your children ages 4 and under and look forward to lots of laughs and learning. There will be no story time the week of Dec. 23 and the week of Dec. 31.

Letters to Santa Writing Station: Starts Dec. 1 and goes until Dec. 21. We will provide everything you need to get your letter ready for Santa. We even have the mailbox to send the letters to Santa.
