At last the Christmas events for Thurles library have been scheduled! Thurles library is looking forward to entertaining lots of families in the weeks leading into the festive season. Our first event takes place on Saturday 7th December at 11.30am. Plenty of time to get out those Christmas jumpers and Santa hats! We have wonderful stories ” When Santa Got Stuck up the Chimney!”, “There’s an Elf in Your Book” & “Santa’s Noisy Night” for starters and don’t forget the singing and dancing “The Dancing Christmas Tree & 5 Little Snowmen Standing in a Row!”
On Wednesday 11th December we will host a Christmas workshop for adults. Why not make a centrepiece for your Christmas dinner table this year? Bertranda Delaney from the Thurles Flower Club will facilitate this workshop from 11.15am. We will provide some materials but we would encourage participants to bring some greenery on the day. Spaces are limited so booking is essential and further information is available if required. Refreshments will be provided.
The ever popular Christmas Pyjama Story-time will take place on Tuesday 17th December at 6.30pm. Special guest Mrs Claus will come along to tell stories and what happens to Santa when he eats too many sprouts in Father Christmas Comes Up Trumps and read from her favourite book the classic ” The Night Before Christmas”. What story-time would be complete without some Christmas favourites “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer & Jingle Bells” so make sure to help Mrs Claus spread some Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear!
The annual Christmas Coffee Morning will be hosted by the staff of the library on Wednesday 18th December from 11.15am. We will be joined in the library by two choirs this year The Little Flower National School from Ballytarsna and The Lámh Choir from Scoil Aonghusa Cashel. So come along for a cuppa, mince pie and some wonderful festive entertainment. This is a free event and all are welcome on the morning.
Finally on Friday 20th December why not start the school holidays on a festive footing and bring the children along to our Christmas Family Movie. This year we are rolling back the years in favour of the gentle, fuzzy version of the Dickens Classic “A Muppets Christmas Carol”
The film will begin at 2.30pm.
All events listed are free to attend but we do require booking on 0761-06-6131 for story-time and workshops!
The Staff & Management of Thurles library wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and Peaceful New Year!
