LIBRARY NEWS: Santa made a special appearance at the Parkersburg Library with a jolly HO, HO, HO on Saturday, December 6,. Before his arrival there was plenty of fun activities to take part in. Librarian Deb Decker began the morning by reading some seasonal stories followed by severa; craft activities. The big moment finally arrived when Santa made a grand entrance into town at 10:30 AM speeding in on the fire truck.  The boys and girls anxiously awaited their turn to sit on Santa's Lap and share their Christmas wish list with him.  Santa's helpers and Mrs. Claus also made a welcoming appearance as they assisted in passing out sacks full of goodies the Parkersburg Chamber provided. 

We want to say a special "Thank You" to the Parkersburg Fire Department, the Chamber and those who came with Santa to make this a special event at the Kothe Memorial Library.
