Gardendale Library Social Cafe' celebrated their first year with a Christmas party event that included the Gardendale High School Choir singing Christmas carols and items for sale as last minute Christmas gifts,
Sharla Foy with Stampin' It Up helped everyone make Christmas cards and Patricia Tate ended the event by playing the guitar while everyone sang Christmas songs. Guests brought a dish to share and there was plenty of food for everyone.
The Social Cafe was the brain child of Gardendale library's own Sunni Speigle, who is over the adult services department.
The idea was to have a place for adults to meet at the library for a wide variety of different programs. She has totally outdone herself with all the wonderful programs that were available during 2019. There has been arts and crafts, music, historical speakers, food demonstrations, authors and more. There is an adult book club
Some of the programs coming up in January are listed. Please see the Library's website for times or pick up a printed calendar at the library:
