“We love to have the choirs to perform at our library,” says Lori Shafer, adult services librarian. “Nothing can get you in the holiday mood like listening to holiday music.”

According to Shafer, everyone can test their singing abilities by attending one of the two Christmas Karaoke events at the Ironton Branch. The first karaoke program is scheduled on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 10:30 a.m. and the second is on Monday, Dec. 14 at 6 p.m.

“We are still looking for choirs and music groups interested in performing,” says Shafer. Anyone interested in performing can contact Lori Shafer at (740)-532-1124 or
