Holidrama in Smithville

The Christmas party in Smithville is always fun. They choose a theme (this year, it was Fiesta!) and it’s interesting to see how it is carried out. Even the staff dress for the theme.

The library was full of people of all ages, enjoying the games & crafts on the tables, using the computers, riding in the wagon and trolley, and munching on refreshments. The turnout shows how much this library is appreciated by the community.  Matt Torrez and John Daniels, Jr. along with April Daniels of Playhouse Smithville held the childrens’ attention as they read stories and poems about llamas and llama drama. They were, after all, just trying to ensure that Grand Slam and Wild Diva, our four-footed South American guests, felt welcome in the library. It looks like they did, as they share their own bit of llama drama with their owners, Dan and Bev Johnson of DBJ Ranch in Giddings.

Going Coastal at Smithville


Laurie had much fun at Smithville’s Holiday Open House on December 9, 2010! They really know how to throw a party that pulls in the entire community. Here’s a picture of the staff of Smithville Public Library going Coastal (not postal!) for the evening, celebrating a tropical Christmas. Also shown is Smithville’s version of “The Reading Express” – a regular feature of their Open Houses – taking their patrons through town to look at Christmas decorations.
