Santa posed for photos and took note of those special Christmas gift wish lists. He was asked for a variety of gifts, including a Barbie Dreamhouse, Peppa Pig, Thomas the Train, a telescope, games, a 4-wheeler, makeup, a trampoline, and a helicopter.

Santa made no promises, but hinted that some of the gift requests might just be doable for good little boys and girls. Well, except maybe the helicopter.

“That would probably be a little big for the sleigh,” the jolly old elf said.

Santa has the follow visits to West Florida Library branches planned before Christmas:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 6, 10:30-11:30 a.m. – Southwest Library

    Tha kids had an amazing time! I’m thinking his helicopter request might be out of reach but maybe her trampoline? They’ve been good this year.
