Hygge at the Library!

Hygge: (pronounced hoo-guh) a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).


the word hygge with a sketched bird, tea cups, books and heartsThis February, we invite you to experience hygge at the Library! Sit in one of our cozy nooks or by the fireplace to read a new book or magazine. Take a time out and visit the card-making station-- create something special for a friend or family member with our calligraphy pens, stamps, and paper. Help us complete one of the jigsaw puzzles-- for kids and adults!--or sit by the cozy fire. Spend some time choosing cookbooks for a special dinner prepared over the course of a long, comfy-at-home- afternoon.  Kids can make their own cards and crafts as well, or maybe they'd like to build their own reading fort in the Library during Fort Night!  It's all hyggelig (hygge-like) at the Library in the deepest dark of winter!
