On Thursday, December 14 at 6:30 pm, the Local History Center invites you to attend “A Dickens of an Evening”, a special holiday event that ventures to Victorian England: the days of Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the fabled Christmases of old.
Featured will be a new addition to the Local History Collection, a stunning Dickens Village, made up of pieces generously donated to Williams County Public Library by Bryan resident, Linda Miller. The pieces showcased this year at the Local History Center include Big Ben, the famous Globe Theater, Ebenezer Scrooge’s house, and of course a library, along with many more. Also displayed are the first Dickens pieces that Linda ever purchased: 3 carolers, a light post, and the cello family. The beautiful Victorian village is exhibited in the front of the department. The village will be first lit the night of the 14th, and the evening will feature a special guest as well. Mr. Charles Dickens himself will be giving a reading from the classic tale, “A Christmas Carol”. The reading will take you through the famous holiday fable that reminds us of the importance of giving and showing kindness. There will also be a village tour, and snacks and refreshments will be available to attendants. The Local History Center is located at 107 East High Street.
