Derby Public Library highlights December events, including holiday open house

The Derby Public Library invites everyone to its Annual Holiday Open House on Monday, Dec. 15 from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Over the years, the day’s activities have expanded. From 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m., Marc Weissman will entertain all visitors on the keyboard as he plays the sounds of the season. In what has become a holiday tradition, the evening festivities will include a visit from the Connecticut Yuletide Carolers from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.. These traditionally garbed Carolers will fill the cold winter air with the warm sounds of the season, bringing holiday cheer to young and old alike. They will stroll throughout the Library, inviting all to sing-along. Cookies and punch will be available throughout the day. There will also be free holiday-themed basket raffles open to all visitors. As usual, this beautiful historic building will be decked, inside and out, in all its holiday glory.  Everyone is invited to take part in this special day.  For more information, stop by the library at 313 Elizabeth St. or call 203-736-1482 or visit
