"The City of Nicholson and the Nicholson Public Library invite you to join them for their annual Jingle and Mingle Christmas," library manager Rhonda O'Keeffe states.

The magical evening continues with the lighting of the Christmas tree, seasonal music and refreshments at the Benton Center. Join us as we dash into the most wonderful time of the year."
