As I am writing this, there are only eight days until Christmas 2018. And, of course, that means the shopping season for Christmas 2019 will start in nine days.

We made it through our first week with the new director of the Big Horn County Library – and he didn’t burn the place down, so maybe there’s hope for him after all.

The Santa visits are going to be winding down this week. Angie and Santa will be at the Hardin preschool this Thursday, Dec. 20, then in Busby Friday morning. Santa’s visit to the Big Horn County Library children’s department on Friday the 14th was a rousing success.

From what I could see, it looked like everyone was having a grand ol’ time. Many of the parents took pictures on their phones. Angie took pictures as well and she will be sending those out to the locations that Santa’s visits took place. We’re using a new system for mail that we’re still trying to get used to, however, so be patient with us if you’re waiting on your pictures with Santa.

Monday, Dec. 24 is, of course, Christmas Eve. All Big Horn County offices will be closed at noon that day. Since the library is part of the county services we will only be open Monday from 10 a.m. to noon, and we will also be closed on Christmas Day, the 25th. We will, however, be open for normal hours on Wednesday the 26th. Any items you may have that are due on the 24th can be put into the drop box outside the front door on that day and those items will not be charged with overdue fines when checked in Wednesday.

It’s during this week every year that things tend to get very busy and hectic. It’s easy to forget the really important things that are right in front of us as we hurry to get last-minute gifts for loved ones, get the house ready for their arrival, and on and on. We at the Big Horn County Library would like to encourage everyone to slow down and spend time with your family, enjoying their company and the good tidings this time of year always brings.

From all of us at the Big Horn County Library, Merry Christmas!
