We would be out of order if we didn’t mention the library has been having a logo contest, which ends Tuesday, Dec. 4, for a Fairfield Library logo. Previously announced on the library’s Facebook page, a $50 Amazon card will be given to the creator of the design judged most appropriate by the library. That logo will be used on library information, including letterheads, business cards, and more. Just like everywhere else in town, the library staff is planning lots of activities to celebrate the Christmas season. Beginning on Monday, Dec. 3, the staff and any interested volunteers will decorate campsite number 52 at the Fairfield Lake State Park in conjunction with their Christmas in the Park event. Visitors to the park are invited to enjoy all the Christmas lights from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8. For additional information about this event, visit the Fairfield Lake State Park - Texas Parks and Wildlife Facebook page. The Christmas at the Library Pajama Party and Special Story Time is at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 14. Come in your pj’s and join Mrs. Mary for cocoa, cookies, games, and Santa Claus. Mrs. Mary will read “The Night Before Christmas” to all kids of all ages. Tech Time, taught by Library Director Gary Wiggins, is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 11, in the Computer Lab. Wiggins is starting a series on how to use MS Excel spreadsheets, and the first class is (wait for it) Intro to Excel. Call the library to sign up for the class, since seats are limited to the number computers for students. Don’t forget Library Bingo continues through the month of December, ending on Wednesday, Jan. 2, with the final drawing to be held at the library on Thursday, Jan. 3. Buy as many cards as you
