The Winter Solstice is Dec. 21, when the days officially start getting longer again. There are lots of great ways to work with young kids to notice the change in the sun’s behavior and its effect on the seasons.  Slowing down and being outside in the crisp changing weather is a good way to enjoy the solstice. Celebrate the Winter Solstice: pick up a free DIY beeswax candle kit. Kits will be available beginning Dec. 7 at both the Main Library and the Robert Crown Branch Library, while supplies last.
