The Friends of the Library Christmas in the Hills Tour of Homes has announced its holiday home line-up for this year and it looks festive, indeed. With a theme of "The Sounds of Christmas", each decor takes on a famous holiday carol from It's Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas to Auld Lang Syne. This year's tour takes place Saturday, December 6th, from 10:00AM to 5:00PM. Tickets can be preordered through November 22nd for $12 each at the library circulation desk. After that date, the price is $15 each. On December 6th, they will also be sold at the Friends' booth set up as part of "Christmas on Mercer Street," and at participating homes on the tour.

And speaking of the library's booth at "Christmas on Mercer Street", the Friends of the Library are continuing their traditional holiday bake sale. This year, the goodies will be sold at the booth. If you would like to bake something tasty for the library's bake sale, please bring it to the library on Friday afternoon, December 5th. For any questions, or if would like to volunteer to work at the booth, contact Bonnie Eissler, bake sale coordinator, at 512-858-7843 or 512-608-1963.

Finally, the Friends are also in need of docents on the Tour of Homes. Each docent works a 2 1/2 hour shift at one home on the tour, and receives a ticket to visit the other homes. If interested, contact Joan Mihal at 512-829-4537 to choose a shift and location.
