SOUTH WHITLEY — Children of all ages were welcomed at the South Whitley Community Public Library Saturday for a chance to greet Santa and meet a few four-legged helpers.

Reindeer pranced into the library to allow children a chance to learn about how the reindeer help Santa deliver presents to children on Christmas Eve.

“The only way the reindeer can fly on Christmas Eve is if Santa chooses them and sprinkles them with magic dust,” said Joni Cripe of Animal-Grams.

Cripe brought Poinsetta, a miniature pony, and Holiday, a reindeer, to visit the children along with Saint Nick.
