During the fall, that tree puts on an explosive show of color before dropping all of its leaves for winter. Enjoy the show with this quick video.

This is Cam’s first ever holiday season here at the Library. He decided to celebrate with these super-fun activity sheets.
Next time you are in our Carrico/Fort Thomas Branch, stop by the children’s area to meet our branch pet, Fiddle.
This is a fun and easy craft. There is very little mess as this project needs no paint, and very little glue!
To create a one-of-a-kind Rudolph ornament, you will need the following materials:
- Clear glass or plastic ball ornament
- Shredded brown paper
- Red pom
- Wiggle eyes
- Brown pipe cleaner
- Yarn or string
- Dow rod for stuffing (optional)
Fill ornament with shredded brown paper, or try another color for a personalized effect.
Glue wiggle eyes and pom to the ornament. Exercise caution in this step as ornaments tend to break easily.
When working with younger crafters, make sure they don’t press down too hard on the eyes or nose.
Make antlers out of pipe cleaner. Cut a 12-inch pipe cleaner into one 6 inch piece and two 3 inch pieces.
Use the 6-inch piece as the “base” of the antlers and use the shorter segments to make the horns.
Make a hanger by tying a loop of yarn or string to the top of the ornament.

We now have a Ntouch Videophone at all of our main branches. Ntouch, by SVRS®, empowers the deaf community to communicate with both deaf and hearing family, friends and business contacts using Video Relay Service (VRS).
This service, paid for by the government’s Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) fund, empowers you to place and receive calls with a professional American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter via a videophone or other compatible device and a high-speed internet connection.
One specially marked computer at each of our main branches has videophone software. Our Alexandria Branch does not provide access to Ntouch. Questions? Ask a information services assistant!
