Hygge in a Bag

Due to the popularity of this program, we’ve had to close registration.

Do you know this word—hygge, (pronounced hyoo-guh)? It’s a Danish and Norwegian word for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality … The word hygge comes from a Danish word meaning “to give courage, comfort, joy”. Hygge stems from hyggja which means “to think” in Old Norse.

Here at the library we’re all about cozy this winter—and courage. Whatever it takes to get through the dark hours and slowly make our way towards the new year and the light. To help with that, we’re putting together some little care packages filled with a few small goodies. From us to you, a little help to make it through.
