Toss the traditional library silence mode out the window for this party

By Monty Siekerman
A teen Christmas party Thursday at the Ada Public Library was anything but calm and quiet, contrary to the traditional library mode of near silence.

When a bunch of teens gather to have fun, it's a noisy occasion, but no matter they had their own room for games, cookie decorating, and gift exchange.

Enjoying the party are (from left) Drew Hadley, Deavan Scott, Kameron Mooney, Jon Allen, Wes Allen, and Leah Conley.

Explaining a game (candy was the reward) are Natalie Walton, youth services librarian, and her husband, Josh.

Pass the red icing, please

Decorating holiday cookies at the Ada Public Library on Wednesday are (from left) Kaitlyn Michael, Leah Conley, and Carmen Mancuso.

Holiday cooking and baking are a part of the holiday tradition in many homes. These youth are learning early on how to fancy up sweets for guests (and themselves).

More than one cookie got eaten during the decorating at the library...and it was fun to lick the icing off the fingers, too. (Monty Siekerman photo)

Andreasen sisters give Santa their lists

Brooklyn Andreasen, 6, (left) and her sister Autumn, 9, tell Santa what they'd like for Christmas while at the Ada Public Library on Wednesday. If you haven't caught Santa recently, consider yourself a hermit because, just in the last week, he has been at ReStore, The Inn, the Depot, and the senior citizens luncheon at the school, and the library.
