Holiday Party 2017

Hello WALA Members!

WALA members and members’ families are cordially invited to join us for our annual WALA Holiday Social. We enjoy a nice potluck dinner, white elephant book exchange, fun bookish games, and catching up with our librarian colleagues. We will provide the ham and beverages if you would please bring a side dish or dessert. For the book exchange, wrap up a book – any book – funny or serious, fiction or nonfiction, new or used. Typically, we bring a wrapped book from a used book sale or a weeded library book that someone might enjoy. This year, we are also planning a game which is not set in stone yet, but might be something like a book title Pictionary.

Please join us on Friday, December 8, 2017 from 6-8 pm at Mulvane Public Library, 408 N 2nd Ave.
