Friends of the Lion’s Head Library distributed books to a long line up of children following the Santa Claus Parade on December 7. Almost 100 books and reusable shopping bags were handed out by Donna Hambleton and Susanne Smith after children visited with Santa at the Lion’s Head Rotary Hall.

There was a great selection of books for babies and children up to 10 years of age. This was a first for Lion’s Head, enabled by generous funding from the Community Foundation of Grey Bruce and was very well received by families in our community.
