The holidays are quickly approaching and this year the Santa Clarita Public Library is excited to host our second gingerbread cookie decorating program for children up to 6th grade. This year, the event will be hosted at all three branches of the SCPL. Generously funded by the Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library, each branch will have enough cookies and supplies for 50 children to decorate their own gingerbread cookie. Last year’s event, which took place at the Valencia branch was a huge success and we are excited to hold the event again. Registration is required and can be found here.
For those who are interested in submitting their very own gingerbread house into our 2nd Annual Gingerbread House Contest are more than welcome! This contest is free to enter and is being hosted by the Friends of Santa Clarita Public Library at the Valencia Library. Forms for entries, rules and guidelines, and recipes can be found here. All entries are to be submitted with an entry form to the Valencia Library on Friday December 5th between 4:00pm-7:00pm. Come by and vote for your favorite entries on Saturday, December 6th from 10am-4:30pm and Sunday, December 7th from 1:00pm-4:30pm.
