Library's Twinkle heads back to North Pole

A Christmas season visitor to the Ada Public Library bids farewell to patrons until next December. Twinkle, one of Santa's elves, spent the month in the library. 

Each day Twinkle found a new location to watch patrons. And now Twinkle is ready to head back to the North Pole. He made the staff brunch for his last trick.

Accoding to the library staff: "It was so nice to have him around the library; watching and listening for all the good boys and girls. Thanks to you, we made the nice list!"

Ada library has great idea for a Christmas gift

Here's a great idea from the Ada Public Library:

Trying to shop for that person who has everything?

Give a tribute donation and benefit the Ada Library. Donations of any shape or size benefit the patrons of the Library and your community, while also honoring your dear family and friends.

Gifts of over $100 gets a memorial name plate on the plaque in the foyer of the Library.

Give me four walls, a roof and lots of yummy stuff to eat, please

Q: What has four walls, a roof and lots of yummy stuff to eat?

A: It should be obvious, but's here's a hint: Lots of these structures were built recently at the Ada Public Library. They are called gingerbread houses.

They come in a wide range of styles and accomodations. The library allowed us to link up to the Facebook photo gallery. 

For an enjoyable time, click here and check out this year's brand of Ada gingerbread houses. (There's 32 photos.)

Feet for Fines at the Ada Public Library

Now through Saturday, Dec. 13 patrons of the Ada Public Library may pay off their library fines and help others at the same time!

The program is sponsored by the ONU Women, in collaboration with the Friends of the Ada Public Library.

Here’s how it works: Patrons may pay library fines (not eligible for lost book fees) in the following manner:

1 pair of NEW kid’s shoes (no flip flops) = $5 worth of fines
1 pair of NEW gloves = $5 worth of fines
1 NEW hat or scarf = $5 worth of fines
1 pair of NEW kid’s socks = $1 worth of fines

All of the collected items will be donated to Helping Hands, a Hardin County charity.
