Humboldt Light Opera Company's KidCo will perform a short, sprightly version of Charles Dickens' famous Christmas tale. This musical show is based on Adam McKeown's highly-praised picture book version of A Christmas Carol, so it is a good length for children of any age and a delightful way to first experience this classic Christmas ghost story.

'News of the World,' by Paulette Jiles, is December's featured title. This is a book group for novel-readers who are 18 years and older. Branch librarian Susan chooses titles that are relatively new award-winners and available in paperback. Five copies are provided by FOAL for loan, in addition to those in the library collection, so check with the library if you need a copy. Participants are expected to read the featured title. Drop-ins are welcome, but comments from those who have read the book hold special merit. No topic is off limits; there is no censorship, but the interests of the group matter.

Hear Chris Van Allsburg's 'The Polar Express' read aloud, then get your ticket with a bell, sip hot chocolate, and ALL ABOARD! for showtime. The film takes you on a mysterious train ride to visit Santa Claus. A child who doubts the existence of Santa boards the Polar Express to see for himself in this 2004 animated movie. Like Van Allsburg's picture books (which include Jumanji and The Garden of Abdul Gasazi), the film combines dreamlike magic and mystery with unusually beautiful artistic scenes that hold more than a touch of the eerie and strange. The film is praised for these qualities and for its positive messages about friendship, hope, kindness and leadership.
