The ninth annual Language Tree is now on display at the Bristol Public Library. Students in the Spanish language classes at Bristol High School have decorated a language-themed Christmas tree that will be on display in the library through Dec. 15. All of the Spanish club students were involved in making the decorations for the tree. The tree, in the library’s entryway, is decorated with the students’ handmade ornaments.
Ferdinand the Bull Giveaway. Children can enter for a chance to win a “Story of Ferdinand” book and toy set. “Ferdinand: The Movie” being released in theaters Dec. 15, was inspired by this best-selling children’s book. Beginning Friday, Dec. 1, children ages birth through 5 will receive one prize drawing ticket each day they visit the library. A random drawing will be held on Friday, Dec. 15.
Elf on the Shelf. The Bristol Public Library’s own Elf on the Shelf, Andrew, will be somewhere in the library waiting to hear all the children’s Christmas wishes during the month of December. Santa sent his scout elf, Andrew, named for the library’s benefactor Andrew Carnegie, to library as an extra set of eyes and ears to report which children have been naughty or nice.
Visit the library each week, Dec. 4 – 21 to see what Andrew is up to. If you find him you might receive an early Christmas present when you tell the librarians where he is. Finding our Elf on the Shelf is open to children ages 3 – 12th grade. Just remember not to touch him or he’ll lose his magic and won’t be able to report to Santa!
