Seasonal Storytelling 2:30 pm, Appleton Auditorium
The Green Flag Band 3:00 pm, Appleton Auditorium
Holiday Craft Making 2:00 - 5:00 pm, Multipurpose Rooms B & C

Come join us at the library on Sunday afternoon, December 1, for an afternoon of beautiful music, storytelling and crafts as we celebrate the different facets of the season. You can visit the Appleton Auditorium and hear The Green Flag Band performing Christmas music, local storytellers spinning tales about Hanukkah and Christmas, and in Multipurpose Rooms B & C we will be creating holiday crafts with which you can decorate your home.

At 2:30, you’ll hear a pair of festive tales: A Child's Christmas in Wales, by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas, and read by Steven Elliott-Gower, an anecdotal reminiscence of a Christmas from the viewpoint of a young boy, portraying a nostalgic and simpler time; and also Herschel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric A. Kimmel, told by Lizz Bernstein, and featuring the prominent Jewish folk hero and trickster figure Hershel of Ostropol.

The Green Flag Band is an Athens, Georgia-based acoustic music ensemble that stays close to the heart of traditional Irish and other Celtic music. The band features Carl Rapp on fiddle, Dave Coons on guitar and vocals, Ken Ross on accordion, and Julia McDermott on hammered dulcimer and vocals.

In Multipurpose Rooms B & C, Athens-Clarke County Library staff and volunteers will be teaching seasonal crafts for kids and adults you can learn and create on the spot, such as bow tying, ornament making, and assembling an inexpensive present. Enjoy a complimentary beverage and snack with us and observe the holiday of your choice, or all of them! The craft demonstrations will be handled by library staffer Lisa Moncrief, RSL Board Members Wanda Culpepper and Lois Brown, and library supporters Denise Burns and Betty Mogilski.
