FAMILY, Inc. ( is excited to host their second annual holiday photo event on December 1 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Council Bluffs Library.

In partnership with a local professional photographer, families have the opportunity to receive a free digital copy of their photo with Santa while engaging in an evening of family fun including holiday games, socializing, and of course enjoying some hot cocoa and cookies. Each child takes home a free book provided by Raise Me to Read. The event is open to the public and in the spirit of giving, FAMILY, Inc.’s Parent Advisory Committee is welcoming diaper donations to benefit the Nebraska Diaper Bank.
