HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE
RELAX YOUR WAY THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS
Sterling Public Library is offering Relax Your Way Through the Holidays on Saturday, November 17 at 2 pm. The program will help us take the stress out of our holiday season. Special guests will provide lots of tips on various topics, including Rece Herboldsheimer who will provide a wonderful program on using scarves to change your holiday wardrobe. Be sure to bring a scarf with you as she will be teaching how to tie them for different looks.
There will also be several flavors of coffee or hot chocolate and a scrumptious dessert to enjoy. Space is limited for the event so you need to reserve your spot by picking up a ticket at the library. Tickets are free and still available. (The relaxing kitty is not representative of actual program.)
