Christmas Activity

We will be giving out Christmas stockings for children next Thursday, December 17th as long as supplies last!  The stockings will have treats and a craft to do at home.  We will show you what the completed craft looks like during our story time video next Wednesday, December 16th.  Come to the Children’s Room door downstairs on the 17th and call 423-586-6410 to let us know you are here to get your stocking.  We will bring it to your car with our curbside service.
