Yeah for Yetis!

Tuesday, Dec. 30, 2014, 4:30 p.m.

What's big, furry, and likes to live in cold places? Why it's a yeti of course. What's a yeti you say? Yetis -- or abominable snowmen as they otherwise known -- are legendary creatures said to inhabit the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet. Unfortunately, we couldn't coax a yeti to make an appearance at the library, but we can celebrate all that makes them wonderful. Join us for an afternoon of games, crafts and more as we devote us ourselves to this fascinating creature. For ages 6 and older.
