He’s made his list and he’s checked it twice; now Santa’s ready to visit the Davenport Public Library this holiday season.  Santa’s been here once already this year and is making two more special trips to the Main Street Library (321 Main Street) on Saturday, December 8 and 15, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.; and from 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 pm. each day.  Due to Mr. Claus’ popularity, we ask that all families are in line no later than 2:15 p.m.

Parents can bring their cameras to take pictures, and there will be goodies for the kids.  Make sure to come early for a chance to see Santa pull up in his amazing Santamobile!

Wells Fargo Bank and Davenport Printing Company sponsor this merry event. For more information call (563) 326-7832.
