2011 Holiday Stroll "Holiday Greetings"

As Zionsville kicks off the holiday season during the first weekend of December, include the Holiday Stroll at the Library in your family traditions. The 2011 Holiday Stroll theme is “Holiday Greetings,” and the Library has again partnered with the Zionsville Merchants Association to provide free rides on the festive red trolley. The trolley will stop at Boone Village, downtown Zionsville, the SullivanMunce Cultural Center and the Fifth Street entrance of the Library approximately every twenty minutes from 11am-3pm on Saturday, December 3rd, and from 1pm-3pm on Sunday, December 4th. Take the trolley to the Library and visit our seven decorated trees –three downstairs and four upstairs- and do a corresponding free craft at each tree. Enter to win one of seven raffle baskets while you listen to the sounds of harpist Tom Duncan, the ZMS Strolling Strings, and the ZHS Chamber Choir. Check out the Holiday Stroll schedule for details.

The Friends of the Library will host their popular Holiday Boutique at the Holiday Stroll, with all proceeds going to Library programs, so you can shop for charming gifts and support the Library at the same time. Stop by the Holly Day CafĂ© in the Olive Hoffman Room on the first floor for free cookies and apple juice after you have a look at the model train display generously provided by Watts Trains. Stevens Puppets will perform two shows of “Beauty and the Beast” in the Lora Hussey Room on Saturday at 1pm and 3pm. The first 100 in line will be admitted and doors open 30 minutes before show times. On Sunday, magician Don Miller will perform in the Lora Hussey Room at 2pm. The first 100 in line will be admitted and doors open 30 minutes before show time.

The Library is pleased to be one of the Zionsville Merchants Association’s “Photo Opportunity Sites.” These are specially-decorated locations at the trolley stops and throughout town at which individuals and families may have a professional photograph taken and emailed to them for $10. The Photo Opportunity Site location at the Library is outside of the Fifth Street entrance. The Photo Opportunity Sites will be available throughout the month of December, but the professional photographers will only be at the sites on December 3rd and 4th. Look for more details on

There are openings for friendly and responsible Zionsville teens and adults to volunteer at the Holiday Stroll as greeters, craft assistants, and refreshment helpers. If you are interested in volunteering, choose a time that works for you on our Holiday Stroll Volunteer SignUp page.

Have a happy Thanksgiving and we’ll see you at the Stroll!
