Polar Express to Arrive at the Library

Wednesday, December 12, from 5:00-7:30 PM

The Library will be celebrating the holidays with a Polar Express Festival on Wednesday, December 12. An all-ages event, community members may grab a cup of coffee or cocoa and listen to live music performances from Mr. Frank Rocha, from the group Folklorica Latinoamericana, the Vela Middle School Jazz Band, and the Harlingen High School Chordettes, a women’s barbershop quartet. A reading of “The Night Before Christmas” will precede the grand entrance of Santa. Children can take photos with Santa, play games, make a craft, get their faces painted, and write a letter to Santa. The evening’s festivities will conclude with a Christmas Carol Sing-Along.

We thank the Harlingen Housing Authority for donating children’s books, Ybarra’s Bakery and Starbucks for their donations, and the Friends of the Harlingen Public Library.
