Saturday is last day to see Christmas finery

Staff report

PIQUA — “Our trees are always beautiful, but this year we really committed to making the library a wonderland destination for visitors,” reports James Oda, Piqua Public Library director. “The decor was carefully chosen to honor the historic nature of the Fort Piqua Plaza, and to showcase a rustic ‘Christmases Past’ theme. Many items on display are truly vintage, while others beautifully capture the spirit of earlier times.”

In addition to several holiday trees, many new items welcome visitors this season. Highlights include a beautifully restored R.P. Spiker sleigh displayed on the second floor (on loan from Larry and Barbara Coffing of Piqua), a magical miniature village collection, cases filled with vintage toys and dollhouses, and much more.

The library will begin packing the seasonal decorations away after business hours on Saturday, Jan. 6. Visitors are encouraged to stop at the library to take one last look, before the season ends.
