CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY TO TWO PATRONS OF THE CHRISTIAN
Selah Dickson of Nixa was the happy recipient of a Christmas basket prepared by Friends of the Christian County Library. Selah’s name was submitted by her grandpa, Jeremy Dickson. Selah, age 2, likes to play with her dog Bo and with her kitchen set. She loves her monkey which she carries everywhere and is a big fan of Mickey Mouse. Some of Selah’s favorite books are Curious George, The Cat in the Hat, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and Blue Hat, Green Hat.
Bettie Reynolds of Rogersville received the adult Christmas basket. She is a retired nurse and enjoys working with her husband in their vegetable and flower gardens. Bettie loves to read and named Margaret Truman, James A. Michener, Victoria Holt, and Debbie Macomber as some of her favorite authors. She comes to the library and goes through the stacks of books looking for something she hasn’t yet read. As a little girl she would climb an apple tree to read her books.
Friends of the Library prepare seasonal gift baskets during the year to not only promote reading, but also to promote the various programs and activities provided by the library to the Christian County community. The library is located at 1005 N. 4th Avenue in Ozark and can be reached by phone at 417-581-2432, or on the web at www.christiancounty.lib.mo.us.
