‘Quiet’ library fills with holiday cheer

The most popular activity is the gift opening game. A box is wrapped and handed around a circle of children while music is played. If the music stops when a child has the box, they rip off the paper. If he/she rips off the last paper and opens the present, they win the prize.

Record number of people attend annual party for second straight year

Bigger and better! It’s the verdict delivered by the record number of people attending the High Prairie Municipal Library’s Christmas Party Nov. 18. This year, 195 people signed in compared to last year’s record of only 174. This year, 16 volunteers served treats and supervised a number of crafts and games tables. The library traditionally holds the first Christmas party of the season locally to kick off holiday festivities.
