Grinchmas at Old Firehouse Books


This December, young guests will discover the “little bit more” of Christmas as Old Firehouse Books welcomes the Grinch back to their store for the second time! Attendees will listen to a reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, plays games, enjoy a small snack, and meet the Grinch himself! The party lasts from 6pm-7pm at Old Firehouse Books on Saturday, December 5th. Entry to the event is free, but we suggest a $5 donation per child. Donations will be used to purchase books for Project Self-Sufficiency, a Northern Colorado nonprofit that creates opportunities for low-income, single parent families.



Tomorrow is Thanksgiving….WOAH

Meaning not only is it a day to stuff your gob with all kinds of fancy and delicious foods, it is also a time with family and to give thanks for all we have. At least in theory.

As the real world does sometimes family dinners can be a thing of stress, chaos or full blown anarchy. Any way you look at it, the holidays all hold a special place for all of us. Whether we love them or not.

In case you want a few books to feel better about your own crazy. Or even just to have a laugh, try some of these out.
