GINGERBREAD HOUSE WORKSHOP
Barrington families are invited to build their own Gingerbread House at the Library on December 6th at 12:30pm. Kits will be provided along with additional decorating items.  We plan on offering a light lunch of pizza and soda in case there are families who would like to attend Holiday Hoopla downstairs in the gym prior to the workshop.  If there are any allergy concerns please contact the library.

REGISTRATION is required. The Library can accommodate space for 12 families (a family = 3 people - - if you have more people in your family please register for two spaces).
