Christmas at The Library Preview

November 19, 2012

Categories: Events

It’s almost here! Christmas at The Library begins on Dec. 1 and runs through Dec. 22.

A number of things many of you have enjoyed in previous years will be available again this year, including horse-drawn carriage rides; Christmas story time for children; live music from carolers; a beautiful display of lights; a large, ornamented Christmas tree; and a live Nativity, depicting the very first Christmas night.

A new addition to this year’s event is Christmas dinner, served at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association headquarters. Thursday through Saturday each week, a maximum of 300 people will be accommodated nightly on a first-come, first-served basis. Large groups (15 or more) can reserve space by calling (704) 401-3200. Groups of more than 100 can also reserve private dinners Monday-Wednesday. Pricing is $14.95 per adult, $7.95 per child (no charge for children under 3).

The Library’s operating hours during December will be Monday through Thursday, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Christmas activities begin at 5 p.m. The Library is closed on Sundays. Guests can pet animals from the live Nativity from noon to 2 p.m. each day.

Please note that after 3 p.m., there is a $10 parking fee per vehicle. Admission to the Library is free; additional costs apply for carriage rides, Christmas dinner or keepsake photographs. Visit for more information.

For those who want to either help spread the word about this event or just add some Christmas cheer to their social media experience, we have some images sized for Facebook cover photos and profile pics. Feel free to use them!
