Children are invited to enjoy their creative side with a variety of hands-on Holiday Crafts throughout the afternoon. Well-known local artist, Bonnie White, will be showing Transparent Watercolors, an exhibit of works inspired by our local area, from Trout Lake to Goldendale in the library's Sprint/Baker Gallery during the Wassail and throughout the month of December.
