Library hosts Polar Express Story Time, Movie Event for Hometown Christmas


The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library will join the Hometown Christmas celebration, hosted by the Effingham Downtown Business Group from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.

To kick off the holiday season, a variety of events are scheduled throughout the downtown area, including a story time and movie make-and-take at the library.

As part of the three-day event, the library will hold a special story time that will feature a reading of The Polar Express and an ornament craft. Then, later in the day, the library will show The Polar Express movie and offer a special Christmas-themed treat for children to make.

The story time will be from 10 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec, 1, in the Children’s Programming Room. Later in the day, The Polar Express Movie Make and Take will begin at 1:30 p.m., followed by the movie at 2 p.m. in the Workman Room. No registration is required for either event.

The Polar Express, written by Chris Van Allsburg, has become a recent Christmas Classic about a group of children who embark on a magical train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve to receive a special gift from Santa Claus.
