  1. Attend a holiday puppet show (all ages, ticketed) 

Library staff are performing Gingerbread Boy, a puppet show about how a gingerbread cookie eludes the hungry grasp of everyone who wants to catch him – until he meets a sly fox. There are three showings at Harrington Library:

  • Tuesday, December 12 at 10:30am
  • Wednesday, December 13 at 9:30am
  • Thursday, December 14 at 10am

  1. Boost your business with Google (adults)

Is your business on Google maps? A free business profile on Google helps a business stand out on Google Search and Maps. In the library’s “Get Your Local Business on Google Search and Maps” virtual workshop, you will learn about the different features to attract and engage customers. Create a free Google account or sign in to your account to follow along with the class.
