The diligent efforts of Library Director Julie Feagle, her staff and those from Friends of The Library, headed by its President Rukhsana Harper , alongside fellow board members Mary Ann Podbielski and Alan Parkins should not go unnoticed , as this event has now become an annual institution on the calendars of both parties.

This visit was a tremendous success as the children welcomed Santa & Mrs Claus with smiles and a great deal of joy. Needless to say, having been showered with their presents , it made the morning for them ,all the more memorable.
