It was standing room only and not a lot of that Friday evening at the Huntley Area Public Library. Dave Gutshall played holiday songs while Santa dandled a long line of youngsters on a red velveteen knee.
The library's new Director Patrick McDonald was at the door to greet guests. He said the library's mobile addition was due to arrive onsite just after New Years Day. "It's a BandAid solution," he said, "but it will help us keep up and deliver better service."
