Santa Claus is coming to town, our town, on Saturday, November 17. He’ll glide down the streets in the morning of Grand Rapids as part of the annual Art Van Santa Parade. After your noses are numbed and your holiday cheer levels heightened, stroll over to the Main Library with the whole family to enjoy Santa’s Workshop!
All events will be located on Level 2 of the Main Library. We’ll have holiday crafts for kids ages 3 to 101. Peek into the Youth Computer Training Center for a chance to create some homemade holiday goodness!
Head down to the Storytime Room for a fabulous line-up of special holiday flavored events:
Santa himself will share the history of Christmas in Grand Rapids with kids!
Our usual Saturday Pre-Reading class will take on a holiday flair with special stories, songs, and activities.
Enjoy stories and a visit from the woman behind the Man in Red, Mrs. Claus! Even though it is the busy season, she’s willing to tell secrets about Santa, the reindeer and the elves.
