Upcoming Events for Children at the Elm Grove Library

Family Holiday Event / December 2020

The Elm Grove Library Annual Family Holiday Event returns with a special at-home edition of Ebenezer Duke!

This annual December event combines homemade crafts with family-friendly entertainment and we continue that tradition this year by giving you the do-it-yourself at-home version. This is how it will work:

You will need to register so that we can give you enough craft supplies for your family and so that we can send you the link to the Ebenezer Duke show. While we encourage you to register by December 1, registration will remain open until December 11. 

Register here!

Take-and-Make Craft Pick-up begins December 1

  • Craft supplies and instructions will be packaged and ready for you to pick up at the library beginning December 1.
  • You will receive supplies for several crafts that have been favorites over the years plus some seasonal coloring sheets.
  • You will need to use your own scissors and crayons or colored pencils.
  • Have a craft day at home and make everything at once, or spread them out throughout the month.
  • Bring a finished craft back to the library for a holiday display!

Ebenezer Duke Show December 4-18

This show is a musical retelling of A Christmas Carol, featuring the original music of Duke Otherwise. Ebenezer Duke has been performed live at the Elm Grove Library the last couple of years, so you may remember it as a fun, lively, interactive story. This year the show will be recorded ahead of time, but there will still be opportunities for the audience to get involved with the story.  

  • You must register so we can send you the link to the show.
  • The show will be available to view for two weeks, December 4-December 18, so you can watch it when it is convenient.

Take a picture of your family enjoying the show and share it with the library through email (egill@elmgrove.lib.wi.us) or Facebook. We would love to see you having fun!

Story Times

Note: At this time, there are no in-person story times scheduled at the library, but you can still enjoy story time at home using our DIY Story Time kit.
