Marion ISD Community Library to host Friday night holiday celebration
Posted on 12/7/2018 7:36:00 AM.
(Marion) – Although the city of Marion was forced to cancel tonight’s annual holiday lighting in Memorial Park, festivities at the Marion ISD Community Library will go on as planned.

Librarian Susan Hales says the library will open its doors for a variety of activities including a special visit by Santa.

"At 5:30 p.m., we are going to have the arrival of Santa Claus so we invite families to bring their children and have their photos taken and Santa is going to arrive on a fire truck so that should be exciting. We are also going to have some crafts for the kids, cookie decorating and other Christmas crafts," said Hales.

Hales says this was the first time that the library was pairing up with the city to host a night of joint celebrations.

However, no matter what the weather, Hales says the library is ready for tonight.

"We'd love to have you come in. It's going to be kind of a rainy night and we have a nice little indoor area for our crafts and to visit with Santa plus we have a library and parents can look around as their kids enjoy themselves," said Hales.

Marion library activities will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. The event is free.
