Princeton Public Library announces upcoming events

PRINCETON — The Princeton Public Library will host the following programs:

• Joy Kauffman will present a program about Farm Stew at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3. This organization has trained 71,000-plus people across three African countries addressing the root causes of hunger, disease and poverty. This program started right here in Bureau County. Kauffman will give the latest updates on training native Africans in gardening, healthful cooking, obtaining clean water, improving sanitation and inspiring them to live an abundant life. This program is free, and all are welcome to attend.

• Starting Monday, Dec. 2, presents can be dropped off at the library on Mondays and picked up wrapped on Wednesday. Library elves love to wrap gifts and will do so for free, although they never turn down a donation. Because Christmas falls on a Wednesday this year, the last Monday to drop off gifts is Dec. 16.

• Gayle Little will play holiday favorites on the piano in the main area of the library at 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6. Everyone is welcome to enjoy the music and get in the holiday spirit during this free program.

• The library will host a Christmas card making event at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5. Participants will enjoy an evening of making Christmas cards, sipping hot chocolate and eating Christmas cookies. The library will supply the paper supplies; participants should bring double-sided tape if they have it. Each participant will be able to put two designs together and take home.áThere will be four designs to choose from.áThis program is free, and all are welcome.
