Staff from Jerseyville Public Library were part of the Jerseyville Downtown Country Christmas light parade.  The library will gladly loan their giant, light-up letters which they attached to half carts and pushed down the street.  JPL will also loan out their Pete the Cat, Olaf and the Easter Bunny (he was wearing a Christmas stocking hat and scarf) costumes.  Clifford belongs to Litchfield PL.
