As the Page Turns

Santa has sent a message to the Jamerson Library. He is sorry he can’t attend “Cookies with Santa” this year, but has sent his elves to the library to deliver some goodies-to-go! There are prepackaged cookies and hot chocolate kits for you to pick up at the circulation desk, and an image of himself, placed in a corner, for you to take a photo with him. He wants you to know he hasn’t forgotten about us in Appomattox. 

Ho, Ho, Ho! Santa has read postcards from kids at the Jamerson Library! That’s right boys and girls Santa Claus has read some of the postcards he has received from the “Magic Mailbox” inside the library. He has sent over a video, to share just how much he has enjoyed reading them, and wanted to share a few of his favorites. You can watch the video on the library’s social media accounts or by going directly to the YouTube link at Don’t forget to come into the library and write Santa your own postcard by Friday, Dec. 18, just in the “Nick” of time for Christmas!
