The holiday season is here, and this weekend is a mix of the festive and the calmat the Stewart C. Meyer Harker Heights Public Library.

The festivities begin with the Teen Holiday Bash from 2 to 4 p.m. this Friday afternoon celebrating all the winter holidays.

Calm can be found with Yoga with Tawni from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, providing an hour of heart health yoga to find balance and strength.

Traditional stories and songs at 6 p.m. Thursday will be the feature of the evening’s Christmas Stories family program.
