The Garfield County Libraries are excited to present a virtual storytime with Mrs. Claus where children will be transported to the North Pole to hear the stories “How Santa Got his Elves” and “The Boy with Too Many Toys.” With Mrs. Claus’ brilliant ventriloquism, children will see a picture of Santa talk and the naughtiest little boy in the world warn youngsters how not to get on Santa’s naughty list. Magical moments will also be incorporated and children will come away believing in Santa. The storytime will be available and free for everyone to enjoy between December 9 and December 23.
