Jolabokaflod is a wintertime tradition loved by Icelanders across the world. On Christmas Eve, you will find most Islanders snuggled in with a warm beverage reading a book and eating chocolate. Now through the end of 2020 while supplies last, you can come in to the Woonsocket Library and get a wrapped book with a candy cane and a packet of hot cocoa mix (children and teens). We have picture books, chapter books, books for tweens and teens and books for adults. The book will be wrapped so it will be a surprise. Our holiday hours are listed above.
Wishing You All A Very Happy New Year!
