Fiction Friday is Canceled Friday, December 21!

In order to enable our entire staff to gather together for Hillside's traditional Staff Winter Breakfast, we will be canceling Fiction Friday in the library (8:15, usually). We will resume Fiction Fridays in January. Please also be gentle with the Community Club members who will be stepping in for our staff on duty on Friday morning! We are grateful to the volunteers who will be covering duties.
