Alongside regular activities, including story and rhyme times, the reminiscence group and coffee morning, visitors will find crafts, theatre and music in the library during December.

On Saturday, 7 December, at 10am there is live family theatre with Cinderella the Physicist. Science and sorcery collide as Cinderella and her dog, Buttons, attempt to make their own happy ending. Live experiments meet music, comedy and puppetry in Theatre of Science’s pantomime with a difference. Tickets cost £1 and must be booked in advance.

On Thursday, 12 December, at 10.30am join Selby Community Choir in the library for a Christmas Carol sing-a-long followed by tea, coffee and mince pies. This is a free event, but donations towards refreshments would be welcomed.

The Selebian singers will entertain customers with festive tunes and there will be a Dickensian Christmas craft session for children aged five to 11 on Saturday, 14 December, from 10am to 11am. Visitors will be able to make a Christmas lantern and paper wreath and to enjoy Christmas stories. Tickets for the craft session cost £1 and places are limited, so book early.
