Join the fun Saturday, Dec. 21, at 1 p.m., at the library with a special family activity, the second annual “Holiday Sing-Along With Mudgy and Santa.”
The free program will be in the Community Room on the lower level. Easiest access will be from the lower parking behind City Hall and through the lower entrance.
Children's author Susan Nipp, creator of the “Mudgy & Millie” book and the nationally known “Wee Sing” series of books and music, will lead the children in singing some holiday favorites.
Mudgy Moose and Millie Mouse will be on hand along with Santa Claus and they will be available after the music for informal photos -- so be sure to bring your cameras.
Nipp and sculptor Terry Lee, who created the bronze statues along the Mudgy Trail, will also sign copies of “Mudgy & Millie.”
The book, which also features the illustrations of Charles Reasoner, was first published in 2008 with its royalties and those for “Mudgy & Millie” merchandise going to the Coeur d’Alene Public Library Foundation. Its release coincided with the unveiling of Lee’s bronzes and the opening of the 2.5-mile trail in cooperation with the City of Coeur d’Alene.
Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315.
