Oak Bluffs Holiday Party

Cookie decorating, holiday music, a visit from Santa and kids’ grab bags (while they last) — it’s all part of the annual Holiday Open House at the Oak Bluffs Public Library on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2 to 5 p.m.

This year’s food table features dishes from the Library Friends of Oak Bluffs’ new cookbook, Tastes of Cottage City from Near and Far. Over 250 recipes were collected from year-round and summer residents, including 20 pages of Ethnic Recipes from Our Island. The Friends Cookbook and handy tote bags will be on sale for that last-minute gift.

All proceeds and donations benefit the library’s year-round children’s programs. Admission, activities and refreshments are free.
