The Blanchard Public Library brings the holidays a little early with a pair of Christmas-themed events.

The adult craft program “Sugar and Spice, Make Christmas Gifts Nice,” at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, gives ages 18 and up a chance to learn the history of blending teas and take home a blended tea as a gift. Belinda Foster will be the program presenter, and space is limited so registration in advance is required.

The whole family is invited to a special Christmas Movie and Crafts event planned at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16. The morning will feature stories, related crafts and a Christmas movie for children and their families.

Registration is not required in advance to attend the family event.
