With the holiday season right around the corner, we’d like to announce the return of a CADL tradition and an exciting, magical giveaway. We’re also bringing you holiday titles to enjoy by the fire, holiday deals in our surplus store and more. If you haven't already, make sure to check out our Digital Holiday Guide!

Christmas Eve Storytime

We’re thrilled to continue our holiday tradition of a Christmas Eve storytime, and we’ve partnered with even more radio stations to reach all our members. This year, tune into 99.1 WFMK or stream 99wfmk.com to hear “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” read by CADL Mason Librarian Lindsay Anderson. The show will air at 7 p.m. and will be rebroadcast at 8 p.m.

Additionally, a Spanish version of our holiday storytime featuring CADL Librarian Mari Garza will be available on WKAR’s “¿Qué Onda Michigan?” (“What’s Up Michigan?”) Podcast. The storytime will be released on Friday, Dec. 23 and will air on 870 AM/102.3 FM on Christmas Eve at 9:45 a.m. and Christmas Day at 8 a.m.

Special Showings on WILX 10

Not only are we partnering with radio stations to bring you holiday magic, but we’re also partnering with a television station. We’ve partnered with WILX Channel 10 to bring you special showings of "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "5 More Sleeps ‘Til Christmas" on Friday, Dec. 23 from 8-9 p.m. Plus, we’ll be doing holiday check-ins with some of your favorite CADL librarians.
