The Champlain Library is planning to participate in the “Pre-Parade” activities on Main Street in Vankleek Hill on Friday, November 30th between 5:30 and 7:00 pm.  An English reading of “The Night Before Christmas” will take place at 5:30 pm and the reading in French at 6:00 pm.  There will also be a children’s Christmas craft available to do during that time.

The library’s Christmas tree will be up and decorated for the occasion.  We encourage children to come into the library to keep warm, listen to stories and do a craft until the parade starts.

November 30 is also the deadline to bring in your donated books for the Book on Every Bed campaign.  The books will be supplied to children whose families are recipients of Christmas baskets from the Vankleek Hill and l’Orignal Food Banks.
