The Campbellsport Public Library staff members are in the holiday spirit. We have displayed our extensive collection of holiday books and movies for easy browsing. If you are looking to read a holiday story to a child, we carry Christmas classics, new favorites and stories about how the holidays are celebrated by a variety of different people. For older readers we have holiday stories written by today's most popular authors, such as Debbie Macomber, Fern Michaels, and James Patterson. We also have a variety of Christmas movies that are available to borrow. Borrowing items from the library is always free if you return the material on or before its due date. If you don't already have a library card it is free and easy to apply for one, just speak to someone at the desk.
? Santa Letters: Santa Claus has once again asked the Miss Katie to collect letters for him. Children must submit their letters to Santa on or before Wednesday, Dec. 19 if they would like a response. All letters should include the child's name and address. Letters can be put into the special mailbox in the library's entrance or they can be mailed to the library at P.O. Box 405.
? Hope Springs showing Dec. 17: On Monday, Dec. 17, the library will be hosting two showings of Hope Springs. The first one will start at 1 p.m.; and the second at 5:30 p.m. Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold (Tommy Lee Jones) are a devoted couple, but decades of marriage have left Kay wanting to spice things up and reconnect with her husband. When she hears of a renowned couple's specialist (Steve Carell) in the small town of Great Hope Springs, she attempts to persuade her skeptical husband, a steadfast man of routine, to get on a plane for a week of marriage therapy. Just convincing the stubborn Arnold to go on a retreat is hard enough - the real challenge for both of them comes as they try to re-ignite the spark that caused them to fall for each other in the first place.
This is a free program and registration is not required. Free popcorn will be served.
Please feel free to bring your own drink. This film is rated "PG-13" but anyone under the age of 17 needs to be accompanied by an adult.
? Book Clubs meet: Both the adult and tween book clubs meet on Tuesday, Dec. 18. The adult group meets at 1 p.m. to discuss the book Christmas with Tucker by Greg Kincaid; the tween group will be meeting at 4 p.m. to discuss the book The Best Christmas Pageant Ever by Barbara Robinson. These groups are open to new members. If you would like to join in on the discussions you can borrow a copy of the book from the library for free.

? Arthur Christmas showing: One Wednesday, Dec. 19 at 4 p.m., the library will be showing Arthur Christmas. This animated feature at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: "So how does Santa deliver all those presents in on night?" The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas Classic - a family in a state of comic dysfunction and unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.
This program is free and registration is not required. The film is rated "PG". Children under the age of 9 will need to be accompanied by an adult or a babysitter over the age of 14. Free popcorn will be served.
