HURON — The Huron Public Library is celebrating the holiday season with several events. There will be a Christmas Ornament Make and Take, an eBook give away, Christmas Eve Day patron appreciation and a class in how to use your eBook reader. All programs are free and open to the public.
• On Thursday from 5 to 6:30 p.m., the library will hold its annual Christmas Ornament Make and Take.

The person closest to the actual number of candies in the jar without going over the number will win an eBook reader. Just stop by the library to place your entry. Second prize is the jar of candy. Contest ends Dec. 21 at 5 p.m. with the winner announced Dec. 22. Open to all ages.
