Colorful lights line the streets, the sweet sound of carolers fills the air, and it is getting chilly outside. The holiday season is finally here, and that means it is time for one of our favorite traditions: Cookie Swap at Ascension Parish Library in Donaldsonville. This year, join family and friends as we come together to create luminary cards. Bring your most delicious homemade cookies and recipes to share, and sample treats from others too. All the fun happens Thursday evening, December 19, at 6:00 PM. Registration is required to attend, and seats are sure to go quickly. Call the library at 473-8052 to reserve your spot, today!
