Different (and Cheap) Ways to Celebrate Christmas on DVD

All Library locations will close at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, and remain closed all day on Thursday, November 26, for Thanksgiving.

In our current financial situation, it’s still important to focus on celebrating the holidays, and doing it cheaply is all the more crucial. These non-feature DVDs are available through your Kansas City Public Library. Have a great holiday!
