ADIRONDACK MUSEUM PASS

Thanks to the Friends of the Library, we have a pass for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake available to all patrons. 

This pass is good for half off admissions for three adults plus children, and can be checked out for free for two days.  Call or stop in at the library for full details. 


The museum is about two hours away and a wonderful day trip for all ages.  It closes in mid-October, so don't miss this opportunity!

National Novel Writing Month, Manga Club, Bookworms and Star Wars Reads Day

WANT TO WRITE A BOOK?  National Novel Writing Month is coming!  Have a story inside you that you always planned to put on paper “someday?”  This November, join thousands of writers all over the world and commit to writing 50,000 words toward your goal.  The library can help you toward this goal.  We’ll have two planning meetings in October – Tuesday the 7th and Monday the 20th – at 6 PM.  Come to one or both to help sketch out further meetings, learn about the process of lightning-fast writing, and check out some resources that can help.  If 50,000 sounds overwhelming, remember that it breaks down to just 1,667 words per day, and you only have to write one day at a time.  This is your chance to be the novelist you always knew you could be.  What do you have to lose?

 MANGA CLUB  The Manga Club for teens will meet at 3 PM on Thursday, October 9.  Join to discuss your favorite plots and characters and eat free Japanese snacks.

STAR WARS  Star Wars Reads Day is Saturday, October 11.  We’ll be celebrating with books, origami, lightsabers and more at 2 PM.  Join the reading side of the Force!
