The library held its first-ever Noon Year's Eve party last Thursday.
Alexander said the library plans to make it an annual event since it proved to be popular. More than 30 children participated.
After Alexander read about New Year's customs, the kids worked on crafts including their own countdown clock and custom-made noisemakers.
When the clock struck 12 (noon), the kids jumped up and down on bubble wrap to simulate fireworks before a showing off their moves in a dance party which featured a bubble machine.
"Children don't have a real association with the holiday and are missing out," said Alexander.
"They're nor partying. But today we were partying."
Ten-year-olds Megan Thompson. Madison Thompson and Gwen Chamer, of North East, said they enjoy doing crafts at the library.
"I like making crafts because you get to be creative and use your imagination," Chamer said.
She added that she has made a couple of New Year's resolutions.
"I'm going to try to get all As and be a better person," she said.
