Skip the craziness of Black Friday shopping. Make it a playful “Bright Light Friday” instead. Sing, dance, and celebrate the start of the Christmas season with KC-based kid rocker and Library favorite Jim “Mr. Stinky Feet” Cosgrove.

On the day of the show, Jim will collect winter clothing items on behalf of the nonprofit Artists Helping the Homeless (artistshelpingthehomeless​.org). Items of need range from socks and long underwear to gloves, scarves, and hats. All sizes accepted (adult large and XL items needed most). Appropriate for all ages.

Kick off the season with a great movie!

A young orphan child mistakenly crawls into Santa's bag and is transported back to the North Pole to be raised as an elf. Years later, Buddy learns he is not really an elf and goes on a journey to New York to find his true identity. Rated PG.

"Ducks growing out of bananas? A mouse catching a cat? What's wrong with this book? Yes, there's something strange, something strange, something funny and even downright preposterous on every page of this book. But it's not a mistake-it's nonsense! And it's also surrealism".
