The children's department of the Haywood County Public Library in Waynesville was a bustle of glitter, garlands and angels recently when middle school children pitched in to decorate their Christmas tree while enjoying cookies, donuts and cider.  The festivities were courtesy of Mountain View Garden Club members who provided the decorations and refreshments, in collaboration with Kim Lathrop and other library staff who supplied the tree.  Many of the ornaments had been handcrafted by Club members, but the children also had the opportunity to make their own as well.  A good time was had by all, and the community is welcome to stop by to view the tree.
