Enjoy some free popcorn with a family-friendly movie on Saturday, Dec. 21 starting at noon. Call the library at 485-3535 or stop by to get the title of the movie. Movie licensing regulations prohibit us from sharing the title on our website or Facebook page because they are public venues, but we can tell our patrons. Here’s a hint though – recently released on DVD, this movie stars Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, and Maya Rudolph and is about a creature who dreams of winning a race.
The Friends of the Horicon Public Library’s fundraiser runs through Monday, Dec.23. Make a free will donation at the desk and you will receive an ornament to decorate using the supplies provided to trim the library tree. All funds raised will support library programs for adults, teens, and children. For more information about the Friends of the Horicon Public Library, you can attend one of their bi-monthly meetings or pick up a brochure at the library.

If you’re as busy as we are this holiday season, save yourself a couple of hours in the kitchen!
The Friends of Horicon Public Library are baking up a storm and will have dozens of cookies ready for purchase at the circulation desk from 11-8 on Wednesday, December 4. The line up includes cut-outs, Cappuccino Flats, Shortbread and many more.
All proceeds benefit Library programming.
Once again that special time of year is upon us and the library will take the opportunity to help support our community food pantries. Between Thanksgiving and New Year we will accept donations of food items that are not beyond their “freshness” date and household items in lieu of fines. We can only forgive fines that were incurred at Horicon and, as usual, donations are unable to be applied to services (copies, faxes, etc.), fees, or damages.
Even if you don’t have fines and want to make a difference, on your next visit to the library we’ll accept your donations and make sure that they get to the pantries. We’ve offered FFF for over ten years and have always been inspired by the generosity of our patrons. We are grateful we are able to help serve our neighbors in need.
The annual Holiday Storytime Craft Party is coming up on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 6:30 pm. There will be a story, followed by a variety of crafts, an opportunity to decorate the children’s tree, and light refreshments.
We’ll be making these cute candy cane reindeer as an edible craft. The candy canes used for this craft will come from Spangler, so they are free of common allergens such as peanuts and gluten. To find out more, you can read the allergen information here. All the other crafts will be non-edible.
The Friends of the Horicon Public Library are having a cookie sale from 11 am to 8 pm the same day as a fundraiser to support library programming. The Friends’ Trim-the-Tree fundraiser will also be going on (Friday, Nov. 29 – Monday, Dec. 23) and everyone is welcome to decorate an ornament for the library tree for a free will donation.
