The Swanton Public Library has announced the adult programs it has planned for the month of December.

Gretchen’s Book Club

Gretchen’s Book Club will meet on Dec. 8 at 5:30pm. December’s book is “The Match” by Harlan Coben.

Copies of the book in multiple formats are available behind the front desk, so stop in and check out your copy today.

Pet Pictures with Santa

Santa will be at the library from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Dec. 10 to take photos with your furry friends. Photos will be available digitally or printed upon request. All Santa asks is for either a donation to the FOSPL or to the Fulton County Humane Society.

Don’t forget to check the list of requested supplies on the library Facebook page before stopping in.
