Christmas in the Rotunda began in our Library in December 2003 with a Charles Dickens theme, and the tradition has continued annually ever since! This December, we will host eight performances in our rotunda, including two handbell choirs, a flute quartet, and a community favorite, the Timpanogos Chorale.
Additionally, we are celebrating "A Dickens of a Christmas" with six different events. You are invited to make a Victorian Christmas ornament and a hedgehog book craft. You can play Scrooge's Escape and search for hedgehogs throughout the library. We will also host "The Muppet Christmas Carol" Movie Bingo and a special live reading of "A Christmas Carol".
Please see our calendar for events celebrating Christmas in the Rotunda, A Dickens of a Christmas, and other seasonal activities. We look forward to seeing you at the Library this month!

"I’ve always loved coming to this library ever since I was just learning to read, it’s always been a haven for me. It’s my second home. I know it, and the books it contains, will always be there for me, no matter what, and having that constant access to literature is, in my opinion, one of the greatest gifts anyone can have."
