Okay, I can’t believe I’m actually typing this in November, but...
The Christmas season can cause an inordinate amount of stress. We’ve got to manage family visits, cooking and baking, decorating and gift giving – and all while trying to survive in less than ideal weather conditions, and while wearing ever tightening pants.
Get a jump on your to-do list and you’ll have more time to relax, as the day approaches.
The Calgary Public Library is a great place to begin! We’ve got tons of books and magazines about decorating, a huge repository of Martha Stewart’s tips and tricks, and an enormous collection dedicated to cooking. We make our Christmas books and music available well before the holiday, too!
So, put to together a master playlist of Christmas music, decide on a menu, and get this season under your firm control!
Ask our information desk staff where to find music, cookbooks, decorating magazines, and information about the history and traditions associated with Christmas.
Don’t celebrate Christmas? We’ve got lots of information and resources about other major holidays and festivals, too.
And be sure to browse through our programs! We've got holiday themed programs for children and adults, and festive live music throughout the month of December.
