The Penticton Public Library is inviting the public to come inside and warm up for an evening.

The Community Holiday Warm-up is being held on Dec. 4 in co-operation with the Penticton Museum to fill the entire building with fun and educational activities.

The night starts at 5 p.m. and will include caroling, hot apple cider and fun festive games for young and old.

A holiday storytelling will be taking place at 7 p.m. For ages three and up. A Santa scavenger hunt will offer up a chance to explore the museum as well. There will also be upcycled book crafts for all ages.

“We’re using old, discarded books to create crafts. So they don’t get wasted, they actually get made into something hopefully useful and attractive,”  said Julia Cox, the youth services librarian with the Penticton Public Library.

The South Okanagan Genealogical Society, a non-profit organization that promotes the collection, distribution and publication of genealogical research, will be hosting an open house inviting visitors to stop by and learn more about the society.

This is an all-ages event and visitors don’t require children to attend. There will be suggested non-perishable food donations towards the Food Bank which are encouraged but not required to attend.

The library hopes to bring people in from the snow and cold for some entertainment and activity during the darkest time of the year.

“Hopefully it’s a way to have a good time on a dark evening,” Cox said.
