Library has many Christmas stories

It’s still a few days before Christmas and the library has plenty of children’s Christmas books for you to borrow. Take a few minutes every day to share some holiday stories with your children or grandchildren. You can borrow as many books from our Christmas shelves as you like since we now have so many. Here are just a few suggestions from the many titles we have.

Santa still has a lot of work to do and it’s Christmas Eve. He’s going to have a lot of friends help him get everything ready in time. Tabbed pages make “Santa’s Christmas Eve” by Salina Yoon a fun book to read.


“Christmas for 10” by Cathryn Falwell finds a family very busy preparing for Christmas. This counting book begins with one and counts to 10 with each number showing the preparations.


Lyle the crocodile loves Christmas and is trying to figure out what he wants. He also enjoys spending time with his friends Bird and Loretta the cat who live nearby. When Loretta disappears, everyone jumps in to help find her so that their Christmas will be complete. “Lyle at Christmas” is by Bernard Waber.


What a Christmas Eve it is in Julie Sykes’ “Hurry Santa!” Santa overslept, he can only find four of the reindeer, and when they finally get ready to deliver the presents, the sleigh gets stuck in a snowdrift. Will he get everything delivered in time?


On Christmas morning, a young boy finds a rocking horse under the tree and his adventures take him all over the world. He plays with that horse every day. As he grows older, the horse becomes forgotten and is stored in the attic. The horse misses his boy and wishes for someone to love him. Will he ever get out of the attic? Find out in “Rocking Horse Christmas” by Mary Pope Osborne.
