Eli had just asked Santa. “Do you have an elf?”

Nolan Royce, 5, and his brother Landon, 4, take a break from reading a book while waiting to meet with Santa at the library. “We like the atmosphere and supporting the community,” mom Amanda, who was with dad Josh, said about the event.

Santa thanked each child for the donation of the new, unwrapped toy and shared with them how, thanks to their kindness, other children will have gifts to open this holiday season.

Hot chocolate, cookies and games were available for all visitors during Meet Santa Day. There also was a story time when Marcia Austin, director of Huntington Branch Library, read Christmas stories to the children.
