Holiday Open House and more events this month at the Campbell County Public Library

Get in the holiday spirit with food, entertainment and a visit from Santa as all four branches of Campbell County Public Library present free Holiday Open House events.

This Saturday, Dec. 7, the Cold Spring branch (3920 Alexandria Pike) will have fun holiday-themed crafts, cookies and live music by Liz Wu from Ritmo 11 am-2 pm. Also that day, Carrico/Fort Thomas (1000 Highland Ave.) will have crafts, games and cookies 11 am-1 pm and the Chris Comer Trio will perform at 12:30 pm.

On Saturday, Dec. 14, the Newport branch (901 East Sixth St.) will host its Open House noon-3 pm. There will be a holiday craft room with crafts for all ages, plus holiday and winter party games. The Alexandria Branch (8333 Alexandria Pike) will have cookies, crafts (while supplies last) and music by violinist Jasmine McKiddy noon-1 pm.

And have no fear, since Santa gets to everyone’s home in one night, being at all four branches’ Open House events is an easy task for the Jolly Old Elf. (At Newport, numbered tickets will be distributed beginning at 11:30 to hold places in the line to see Santa, starting at noon.)
