Gretchen Ricker, a member of the Friends of the Library, will again be featuring her favorite holiday story during Saturday's annual Holiday Readings and Stories for Children. The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.
(Seguin) -- Kids are invited to celebrate the Christmas season with a few good books. The Friends of the Library will be presenting its annual Holiday Readings and Stories for Children this Saturday at the Seguin Public Library.
Hannah Farmer, youth services librarian, says members of the non-profit organization are again excited about turning the pages to the books of some of their favorite holiday stories.
"It's holiday stories for children really of all ages and there will be something for everybody. The various members of the Friends of the Library will read some of their own favorite holiday books for kids," said Farmer.
Families will be treated to a special arrangement of stories. Farmer says the stories are designed for all families.
"It's an opportunity to hear some classics and some new stories as well -- to see different types of stories read. There's going to be one story that will be interpreted for the deaf and hearing impaired into sign language. There will also be a story in Spanish and so, there's something for everybody and will help get people into the holiday spirit," said Farmer.
This year's guests readers include Sanjuana Patino, Stella Ozuna, Hope Pees, Gretchen Ricker, Tom Engler, Sandra Gravitt, K. Wendt, Danny Vinson and Barbara Vinson, interpreter for the deaf and hearing impaired.
Farmer says the guest readers will be on hand two full hours to entertain local families.
"There will be eight different stories so you can come for all of them or stay for part of them and then check out some books from the library," said Farmer.
The event is free and will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the library's Community Meeting Room.
