As the world prepared to usher in the new year, the Summers County Library hosted a special celebration. Because the change happens at midnight, so too, do all New Year-related events. This means, because of early bedtimes, most children do not get to experience the festivities. To change that, the library hosted a “Noon” Years’ Eve party so that local children could be included.
Those at the party were able to participate in crafts, activities and general fun. The library also provided snacks. One of the most intriguing activities, however, was a special countdown to the clock striking 12. This provided a unique experience for those in attendance.
Quite a few families attended the party. Youth Services Librarian and Special Projects Coordinator Kristina (Miss Kris) Kellan said, “There was a great turnout.” She also noted that the event went well and that more events are being planned for the near future.
If you would like to see more events like this in the future, the Summers County Librarians would love to hear from you. Send an email to email@example.com or call 304-466-4490. The library is open for all of its normal services Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.
