Santa is scheduled to arrive in Paxton on Friday night. He'll be here at the library on Saturday for a meet and greet and for photos.

Professional photographer Sarah Anderson will snap your adorable photo and we'll have prints ready in the week that follows.

There is no charge for the photos or the prints, courtesy of the Friends of the Richards Memorial Library. Crafts, candy canes, and small gifts for children.

Backyard Astronomy

Come in to borrow the library telescope!

Please come on in to check out the library telescope to observe objects from your own backyard using a technique called star-hopping and learn how easy it is to use!

This telescope was donated to the library by John C. Root in memory of his wife, Susan E. Root, and is maintained by Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt a Library Program.
