All aboard the Polar Express

Taylor Library hosts 'Polar Express'


Derry News

---- — EAST DERRY — It’s a journey of a lifetime.

Any child with holiday hopes of meeting Santa Claus had their dreams come true when Taylor Library hosted its annual “Polar Express” story times last week.

For three nights, the library was transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with holiday treats, cocoa and a train ride to the North Pole.

The popular events are based on the story by Chris Van Allsburg, telling the tale of a young boy taking a snowy journey to meet Santa.

Children arrived in their pajamas, received a bell to ring and enjoyed stories while taking their train ride.

Once the train “arrived” at the North Pole, Santa visited with each child and heard their wish lists for the holidays.
