Sugar cookies, frosting, sprinkles, PJs, robes, and slippers, oh my! Children will not want to miss our special storytimes on Saturday, December 17th at 1:00 p.m. located at our Dillsboro Library Branch, and Tuesday, December 20th at 6:00 p.m. at our Aurora Library Branch. “Cookies for Santa” is our agenda for both of these dates. Stories and activities will feature children decorating two cookies; one for themselves to enjoy and then one to keep and put out for Santa on his special night. Don’t worry, we have a special box to keep that special cookie for you know who!
We cannot wait to see you there! Please wear your coziest, warmest, snuggliest pajamas and get ready to read and eat!
It is the most wonderful time of the year. The snow is falling, the trees are twinkling, and the cookies are baking. The Aurora Public Library District is hosting a cookie contest! The contests will take place on Saturday, December 10 from 11:00 am-1:00 pm at the Aurora Branch and on Wednesday, December 14, from 4:00 – 6:00 pm. There will be three categories: Best Decorated, Best Tasting, and Best Overall. The best decorated and the best tasting will only have a first prize winner but the best overall will have a first and second place winner!
Dillsboro Town Manager Susan Greco will be judging the cookies entered for Dillsboro. Aurora Mayor Mark Drury will be the judge for the cookies entered for Aurora. The cookies can be dropped off up to an hour before the program officially begins. When you bring the cookies and enter them into the contest you must include the following: name, number, and if the cookie has nuts. Three cookies must be brought for each category, in case of a cookie mishap or if Santa gets hungry!
We can’t wait to taste your masterpieces!
