December was a busy month for Cumberland Public Libraries, starting with artist Alan Syliboy and his Thundermaker exhibit. Thundermaker is touring the Nova Scotia Public libraries and was in Cumberland County at the Springhill Library from December 2-19. Classes from various schools in Springhill took advantage of this rare opportunity and visited the exhibit.

12 Days of Cookies, an idea stolen from the Annapolis Valley Regional Library, was a success in its first year here in Cumberland. All 7 branches participated sharing homemade cookies with their library patrons.

During the month of December, all public libraries in Cumberland County will once again be forgiving overdue fines in return for non-perishable food items. All food collected will be donated to local food banks. This is the 10th year CPL has offered Food for Fines.
