Santa Claus Advisory…Santa Scheduled to Visit Redwood City Libraries!
Redwood City, CA - December 7, 2011 - This special Santa Claus Advisory (SCA) is for all Redwood City kids, and for Redwood City adults who are young at heart: Santa Claus is scheduled to visit all four Redwood City Public Libraries in the coming weeks. Kids are advised to bring their list, their best behavior, and their good cheer – and parents are advised to bring their camera.
Here is Santa’s Redwood City schedule:
- Redwood Shores Branch Library, Sunday, December 11
1 – 4 pm
- Schaberg Branch Library, Tuesday, December 13
3:30 - 5:30 pm
- Downtown Library, Wednesday, December 14
6 – 8 pm
- Fair Oaks Branch Library, Thursday, December 15
4:30 - 6:30 pm
Children who visit Santa at the Redwood Shores and Downtown libraries only are further advised that while waiting to talk to Santa they can enjoy a book reading by local author Karen Morss, accompanied by her red-haired poodle, Lucy. Ms. Morss will be sharing her book Flying Poodles: A Christmas Story. Copies of this fun holiday book will be available for sale at the events, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the non-profit group Smile Train (www.smiletrain.org).
Those attending Santa’s December 14 appearance at the Downtown Library can also enjoy a live holiday concert featuring Gabriel’s Trumpet Trio, at 6:30 pm in the Fireplace Room.
Finally, a reminder that any “naughty” Redwood City residents with outstanding library fines are invited to deliver nonperishable food items to any Redwood City library (or to any of the San Mateo County Library’s twelve branches) during regular business hours – and their Library fines will be erased! This special “Food for Fines” program continues through the month of December. Those “nice” Redwood City residents who do not have any Library fines are also encouraged to donate food!
This concludes today’s Santa Claus Advisory. Any further developments in Santa’s schedule will be reported.
