ELF ON THE SHELF RETURNS! DECEMBER 1-21

Our Elf-on-the-Shelf Chester had such a fun time at the library last year, he begged to return. We expect him to arrive Thursday, December 1. The only problem is, he loves to hide and we never know where he will be in the library! He has given us some hints though and he is ready to play the game of hide-and-seek as he returns to a new hiding spot in the library every day until December 21. (Psst…he has magical powers and is able to fly back and forth to the North Pole each night). Play the game of Elf-on-the-Shelf BINGO and see how many times you can spot him. Sign up at the library anytime in December. All ages welcome.
