Kermit Christmas


Kermit’s Christmas Crisis at the Library!

This Christmas Kermit the Frog volunteered to help Santa deliver presents. It seems things haven’t worked out as Kermit planned and now he is the one needing help.

Stop by the Friench Simpson Memorial Library in Hallettsville to see what kind of trouble Kermit has gotten into.

While at the Library we invite you to use your imagination and some creative writing to tell us about Kermit’s Christmas crisis.All of your short stories will be hung in the Children’s department through the Christmas season.

Pick up a “Dear Kermit” page at the Library to write your story any time during regular business hours. Programing at the Library is free and open to the public. For more information call 361-798-3243 ext 208, visit our Facebook page,  or follow us on Instragram @hallettsvillelibrary

Ms. Fisseler helped coordinate an initiative to rescue, preserve, properly house and facilitate access to historical records documenting the county that led to the creation of the Lavaca County Archives. She has demonstrated the enormous impact one individual may have on preserving our collective history.
