The Richard A. Tucker Memorial Library and the Norfolk Southside Coalition are partnering to bring families a holiday event. Explore the magic of Santa’s Enchanted Garden at the library on Saturday, December 11, from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. The library is located at 2350 Berkley Avenue Ext., next to the Southside Aquatic Center.
Holiday-themed photo stations will be set up throughout the 5,000 square-foot Nature Explorium for visitors to take photographs, including a gingerbread house. The Nature Explorium is an outdoor classroom with interactive learning stations that connect learning, literacy, and an appreciation of nature as a regular part of a library visit for children and families.
Children can meet a non-contact Mrs. Claus and the jolly old elf himself along with children’s book character Lady Bug Girl who will make special appearances during the event. Each child will receive a special gift bag and Grab-n-Go holiday craft. Learn more at norfolkpubliclibrary.org.
Masks are required and visitors must practice physical distancing. Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 or recently exposed to the virus should not participate.
