Christmas cheer, crafts and music at Chilliwack and Yarrow libraries

Make festive ornaments out of old books while enjoying Christmas music at Chilliwack libraries

A busy group of children and adults spent part of their afternoon at the Chilliwack Library taking part in Christmas Cheer on Thursday.

They had the opportunity to create Christmas ornaments out of old books and colourful paper, which they later took home or hung on the Christmas tree at the library.

The event also featured holiday music by harpist Heather Murray, a cake, and hot apple cider.

If you missed this event, the Yarrow Library is hosting something similar. All ages are welcome to come to the Yarrow Library’s open house and join the library staff for some Christmas cheer on Tuesday, Dec. 18.

Bring a friend and enjoy some hot apple cider, festive treats and music throughout the day. There will be a Christmas craft meet-up from 3 to 4 p.m. — make like an elf and create some spectacular Christmas crafts, perfect for your Christmas tree or as a gift.

The open house runs all day at the Yarrow Library from 10:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
