There's a lot going on at Harbor Centre on Saturday, Dec. 7, during "Home for the Holidays." Mead Public Library will hold a free family concert featuring Fox and Branch at 10 a.m. in the Story Garden. Children of all ages and families are welcome to attend. The Sheboygan Optimist Club will offer a children's craft program following the concert.
Mead Public Library will be closed on Dec. 24 & 25; Sunday, Dec. 29; and Dec. 31 & Jan. 1. When the library is closed, items may be placed in the drive-up return slots, but they will not be credited to your account until the library reopens. Want to get in the spirit? Check out our Great Tree (pictured) in the second floor Quiet Study Room.
Want to give a gift to your favorite library this year? We make it easy at our "Give a Gift to Mead Library" display on the first floor. Just pick out a book, pay the discounted price, and we'll create a lovely holiday bookplate with a personal dedication. We also have acknowledgement cards. A great gift for the reader who has everything!
