Monty Harper Spreads Some Holiday Cheer at Belle Isle Library

Performer/songwriter Monty Harper has been putting smiles on children’s faces for over 20 years. Not bad for someone who intended to be a mathematician.

Harper brings his “Wacky, Witty Songs” to Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, 843-9601, for a great way to race into the holiday season on Saturday, December 7, at 2:00 p.m. A long-time performer at library events, Harper’s presentation is fun for the entire family.

Hand-Make the Holidays at Edmond Library

You don’t have to buy holiday decorations and gifts. You really don’t.

That’s the message you’ll hear when attending “Handmade Holidays,” a three-part workshop at the Edmond Library, 10 S. Boulevard, 341-9282.

“It’s about more than saving money,” said librarian Mary Ann Johnson. “It’s just as importantly about infusing the holidays with your own talent and personality. As much as the people on your list appreciate what you buy for them, they will love something you created with your own hands.”

As moral lessons go, this one is pretty good: “Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. Maybe Christmas, he thought... doesn't come from a store.”

If you agree, you might want to put attending “Handmade Holidays” on your to-do list. It’s a three-part workshop at the Capitol Hill Library, 334 S.W. 26th Street, 405-634-6308, each session beginning at 2:00 p.m. “It’s about making memories,” said librarian Jennifer Jones. “We want people to spend some quality time doing something fun, expressing creativity, and leaving with a handmade gift to give away.”
