The Friends of the Grand Forks and District Public Library hosted photos with Santa.

 

Marcus and Violet Perkins sat with Santa – even though not everyone was a big fan of the guy in red!

Baby Thomas posed for his first-ever photo with Santa.

The Friends of the Grand Forks and District Public Library hosted the annual kids and pets photos with Santa session at the library on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Kids, their parents, and their four-legged friends all posed with Santa (and told him what they wanted for Christmas!) with a donation to the Friends. The event raised approximately $600 for the library through the Friends, and was a fun afternoon for volunteers and families alike! (Kathleen Saylors/Grand Forks Gazette)
