\We held our annual holiday tea on Dec. 2, and as always, it was a very warm and cozy event, complete with refreshments and good company! A special thank you to Lynn Halldorson with Kettle/Black Teahouse for catering our tea, it was delightful.

Occasionally a member of our library family is the lucky winner of our lovely quilt and the 2017 quilt drawing was one of those occasions. The winner of the quilt was our own Chara Larrance, longtime library volunteer! Congratulations, Chara!!

To welcome the youngest new citizens of Cannon Beach and Arch Cape, we have begun a new program called “Books for Babies.” All babies who live in Cannon Beach and Arch Cape from newborn to one year of age are eligible. Parents, please come to the library at 131 North Hemlock to receive the gift of three brand new books for your little ones! We are open every day except Sunday.

Cannon Beach Reads will convene at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 20, for their final book of the 2017 season. They will be discussing “In Defense of a Liberal Education,” by Fareed Zakaria. To kick off the 2018 season on Wednesday, Jan. 17, they will be discussing Mark Twain’s “Life on the Mississippi.” The complete list of 2018 books will be available soon. New members are always welcome!

We have begun thinking about a new reading program for our entire community. We would all read a book, at which point we would meet for a community discussion. Book most likely would deal with issues such as tourism, coastal wildlife, and other topics relevant to our community. So let’s all think about this for future months. If you have any ideas to share, please call the Library at 503-436-1391. More to follow!

Lastly, keep in mind that the library will be closed on Monday, December 25th and also on Monday, Jan. 1.

Once again, we would like to wish each and every one of you a warm and joyful holiday season!
