Dolores HydockIt's Not the Food, It's the Fellowship - December 3. 6:30 pm

Traditions make the holidays ... even if we sometimes forget why we're doing them or how they ever got started! Join storyteller Dolores Hydock for some funny, affectionate stories about the sometimes-crazy rituals and traditions that help even the Scrooge-iest among us locate that elusive Christmas spirit, year after year.

Make & Take Hand ScrubDecember 6. 6 pm. Join us for a fun evening as we make homemade hand scrub using all natural ingredients and your choice of essential oil and fragrance. Kim Blair, owner of Blair Pharmacy in Weatherly, will walk the group through all the steps as you create your unique hand scrub recipe.  Come ready to learn a lot, get a little messy, and have a great time making the perfect hand scrub for you or a thoughtful Christmas gift for someone else. This event is appropriate for all ages and stages. Sign up is required. Please call the library at 205-664-6822 for more information. Program takes place in the meeting room.

Ya Ya Yarners – December 10th and 17th. 5:30 pm. Monday evenings from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. The Ya Ya Yarners are meeting at the Albert L. Scott Library now! Do you knit or crochet? Would you like to learn how? If so, we have a group for you… the Ya Ya Yarners! We will teach you how if you don’t know how.  We will start you with one of two simple projects.  We will supply the needles or hooks and yarn and a pattern.  We also do community projects such as hats for service members, lap blankets, prayer shawls and many other things, plus we have a really good time.  We hope you will join us!  For more information please call the library at 664-6822 or email Carol Smith at csmith@shelbycounty-al.org. Program takes place in the meeting room.


Library Book Group – December 20. 7 pm. Join us for our discussion of The Radium Girls by Kate Moor. The Curies' newly discovered element of radium makes gleaming headlines across the nation as the fresh face of beauty, and wonder drug of the medical community. From body lotion to tonic water, the popular new element shines bright in the otherwise dark years of the First World War. Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill. Program takes place in the meeting room.
