The point of the program was to warm up with hot chocolate and meet the Luina Greine Farm alpacas of Groton. The program held on Saturday, Jan. 27, from 1 to 3 p.m. This was the kick-off event for our community read of "The Little Book of Hygge: Danish Secrets to Happy Living" by Meik Wiking.
Luina Greine Farm came and set up a pen and brought two of their friendliest alpacas for free. We allowed them to set up a table with some of their products to sell. Just inside the entryway of the library we set up three slow cookers full of hot chocolate with marshmallows, peppermint and whipped cream. We had a line out the door for the hot chocolate.
If weather permitted, there was going to be sledding, but that didn’t happen because it was warm that day. The sledding would’ve topped it off, but regardless, it was such a fun day.
Groton Public Library found a way to brighten up a cold day: fuzzy animals and hot chocolate.
