Hygge season is here

The Charlotte Library is celebrating hygge season during November.

Hygge is “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.”

Consistent with the hygge theme the library is holding a Get Cozy Raffle for a comfy quilt made by Amanda Herzberger.

Also being raffled is coffee from Paradiso, cocoa and chocolates from Lake Champlain Chocolates, tea, beeswax candles and an assortment of great books.

Tickets are $5 apiece or five for $20.
