Miniature Christmas trees will be decorated at the Sherrard Public Library for Sherrard's Holiday celebration.

Individuals and groups from Sherrard have decorated 42 trees for the Sherrard Public Library's annual Christmas Tree Auction. "We had such good experiences last year we are continuing the Christmas tree auction," said library director Laura Evans. This is the fifth year of the event. "We started with eight trees."

The Sherrard Library will be holding an open house from 2-7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 6. Cookies and cocoa will be served all day. Santa will be making an appearance that evening and have his picture taken with area children.

The library also hosted a luncheon Dec. 1 with casserole, salad and dessert. 

"The Christmas trees will be ready to be bid on at that time. The luncheon is an added activity," said Evans.

Classes from Matherville and Sherrard will visit the library to see the trees.
