The Lake County Public Library in Merrillville invites everyone to stop by and view the nine Christmas trees set up now through December 23rd in the Acheff Art Gallery. The trees were decorated by the employees of various branches of the library system representing specific themes and designs including garland made from old encyclopedias, actual processing materials, noses put into books, fish and boats from a lakeside branch, miniature cross-stitch from craft classes, historical trains from a station branch, gingerbread men from program refreshments, and more. While you're there, take some time to view the original SouthShore poster artworks depicting life in Northwest Indiana.
The gallery is open from 2 to 4pm and from 7 to 8pm Monday through Thursday, and from 2 to 4pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
