Santa Claus found his way to the new Buckeye Lake Library last week. His visit was co-sponsored by the Licking County Library and Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library. Above, Friends’ board members Marlene Rushay and Dorothy Hertlein serve cookies, drinks and Christmas peanuts to children and their families. Others wait patiently to talk with Santa in the conference room. Each child received treats and a book. Buckeye Lake artist and library neighbor Ray King constructed Santa’s backdrop.
