December Festivities Abound at Norcross Library

The 1921 establishment will host a launch party for the "Norcross: A Living History" DVD and the annual open house for the Norcross Woman's Club.

The recently historically restored Old Library in Norcross, circa 1921, will sparkle with candlelight, festive decorations and holiday refreshments for two free December events.

On Saturday, Dec. 1, the library will be hosting a launch party and signing for the oral history DVD of "Norcross: A Living History." The two-disc set takes viewers through two centuries of histories, lore and personal experiences, told by local historians.

Long-time community booster Col. John Adams, community leader Rufus Dunnigan and former Mayor Lillian Webb are just some of the speakers interviewed in the DVD.

The box set is $25, and the event runs from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The other gathering is the Norcross Woman's Club Annual Open House and Toy Drive for the Norcross Cooperative Ministry next Saturday, Dec. 8, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Mingle with members of the club while enjoying finger foods and drinks, but don't forget to bring a new, unwrapped toy to place under the tree for families served by the co-op. Last year, the event gave toys to children in 40 different families.

The Old Library in Norcross is located at 65 North Peachtree Street, across from Thrasher Park. For more information on the events, call the library at 770-734-9924.
