Selbyville Library celebrates the season


As the air turns crisp, and the calendar rolls over, the holiday season is once again in full swing, and no one is more excited than the Selbyville Public Library. They have two holiday events that are sure to put you in the Christmas spirit: Capital Ringers on December 8th and an Open House with Santa and Mrs. Claus on December 15th.

Library Director Kelly Kline is proud to once again be bringing Capital Ringers to the public, in partnership with Salem United Methodist Church on Saturday, December 8th at 3PM.  “This is an event that is packed to capacity each year, so it’s highly anticipated, and one the community really enjoys!” Kline says about the handbell choir. “The music is quite layered, and so the sound is really rich. It’s something we look forward to each year.”

Providing the community with access to art and entertainment is a cornerstone of Kline’s philosophy as a Library Director, and this event is one that is terrific for children and adults of all ages. The concert is held just around the block from the Selbyville Public Library at Salem United Methodist Church. The free tickets are available to pick up at the Library, and you must have a ticket to enjoy the show. There are 140 tickets available for the performance on a first come, first serve basis.

If you’ve never had the opportunity to enjoy Capital Ringers, expect a lively Christmas show with many of the holiday classics. Because it’s a handbell choir, there is a physical aspect to the show as well, making it both a visual and audio feast for the senses!

If your kids are after a visit with the big man himself, Mr. and Mrs. Claus will be swinging by the Selbyville Public Library on Saturday, December 15th from 11AM until 1PM where Kline and her staff will also provide refreshments and holiday crafts. A special performance from a student choral group will make the event more merry. Come and tell Santa about your Christmas wishes, in either English or Spanish. Selbyville Public Library’s Santa is the real deal and bilingual! Families will also  get digital copies of their pictures with Saint Nick!

Come and make merry and spread some Christmas joy with the Selbyville Public Library this December! For more information visit


Clauses: Nick and Clarissa Claus, who in keeping the magic of Christmas alive, keep their true identities a mystery, will be at the Selbyville Public Library on December 15th from 11AM until 1PM.
