Crafts and Christmas seem to go together because the best gifts are those that are made with love. My family one year decided that we would make Christmas special by everyone making gifts for each other. When my mother passed away, one of her items I got back was something I had made her that Christmas. It has a special memory for me now.
I went on the CMRLS website calendar and checked just the art and DIY craft events
in the system for the month of December. There are so many different programs available. Find something you think would be fun, check with that library, and then make something special for someone special to you this Christmas.

We at the Brandon Library are excited to announce that we are now affiliated with Amazon Smile!
Much like our Kroger Community Rewards Program, Amazon Smile allows patrons to support us with no cost and no effort! Go to smile.amazon.com and select "Friends of the Brandon Library" as your organization of choice. As long as you log in to Amazon via smile.amazon.com, .05% of your entire purchase total is donated to us each time you shop! This may not seem like a lot, but remember: every little bit helps.
(Besides, we're librarians! We're used to doing a lot with a little.)
Are you gearing up for a big virtual trip to Amazon this Black Friday? Want to get a head start on the Season of Giving? We have the perfect opportunity for you.

A Blessing Box Food Drive, sponsored by the recently formed Team Tungsten Robotics of Rankin County, will be underway on Tues. Nov. 6 and run through Fri. Dec. 21 at the Pearl Public Library.
The Blessing Box is a community outreach event the robotics students chose to hold to fulfill one of their requirements. There are five members of Team Tungsten Robotics, ages 11 and 12, who work together as a team to design a build a robot. Team members will be available to answer questions at the Family Night program.
Team Tungsten Robotics, started in August, is mentored by the Wait For It Robotics team of Pearl which won the World Championship robotics competition in Houston, TX last year.
For more information you can call robotics' team coach and Pearl Library staffer, Holly Hardin at 601-932-2562.
Come on by the Pearl Library and be a part of this wonderful community event. And, don't miss Family Night with Zoe Brumfield!
We'll see you there!
