December is packed with festive celebrations, including Hannukah, winter solstice, Christmas, Kwanza, and others. It’s a busy time for many, with decorating, meal prep, purchasing gifts, visiting family, and attending community celebrations. Pikes Peak Library District has all the programs, tools, and resources you need to make the best of the holiday season, including cookbooks and classes, DIY gifts, holiday book lists, and more!
