Monday December 16th at 4:00PM join us for a special holiday story time. We will share the stories of the Mensch on a Bench and The Elf of the Shelf.
The week before Hanukkah and Christmas we are holding a special holiday scavenger hunt. Participants are welcome to search the Children’s Department for our hidden Mensch on a Bench and our Elf on a Shelf. Stop by as often as you like all week to locate these two as they hide in a new place every day.
The Mensch on a Bench is a new Hanukkah tradition designed to bring families together. While teaching the importance of the holiday, Moshe the Mensch and his family are on a mission to inspire others to be honorable Mensches (a person of integrity and honor) and to bring fun and laughter to your family during the holiday season.
The Elf on the Shelf is a fun-filled Christmas tradition that has captured the hearts of children everywhere who welcome home one of Santa’s Scout Elves each holiday season. The magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his nice list by taking note of a family’s Christmas adventures and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole nightly. Each morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to spot them. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their Scout Elf.
