ALBION – Santa Claus read a story and met with children during a Christmas in July celebration at Hoag Library today. Santa is wearing his summer “Santa casual” outfit. He read to the students.

Santa wasn’t able to meet with kids in-person during Christmas time visit to the library in late 2020 and 2021 due to Covid restrictions and concerns.
