Community Christmas Sing-A-Long

As part of the Muskingum County Christmas Experience - A Storybook Christmas - your library invites everyone to stop amidst the hustle and bustle of the season and join us for some old fashioned holiday stories, fellowship and fun. We will hear from some soloists, a bell choir, and a women's ensemble will lead us in some favorite songs of the season for a fun sing-a-long. Reservations are required for this free program and space is limited.

"The Night Before Christmas" presented by The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati

"...and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." 

It's Christmas Eve and the anticipation is building. Presents, lights, even milk and cookies...but are you ever too old for family traditions? Based on the enchanting poem by Clement Clark Moore, this lyrical adaptation celebrates the joy of family and the magic of holiday stories, reminding everyone what Christmas is all about.
