WEEKLY QUOTE  “In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones. Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers. They know it is time to be still.” – Cynthia Rylant, American children’s author

WEEKLY QUOTE  "Give me the end of the year an' its fun When most of the plannin' an' toilin' is done; Bring all the wanderers home to the nest, Let me sit down with the ones I love best, Hear the old voices still ringin' with song, See the old faces unblemished by wrong, See the old table with all of its chairs An' I'll put soul in my Thanksgivin' prayers." – Edgar A. Guest, English-American poet


LIBRARY CLOSED  The library will be closed this Thursday and Friday, the 24th and 25th, for Thanksgiving, and open as usual on Saturday.  Enjoy the holiday, and if you head out for any Black Friday deals, shop safely!


CHRISTMAS CARDS  Beginning this week, we will set out a table of Christmas cards to be sent to local nursing home residents.  Please consider signing a few (or all) of them the next time you visit the library, and help spread some cheer this holiday season.



WEEKLY QUOTE  “I have come to regard November as the older, harder man's October.  I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures.  It puts my mind in a different place than October.  It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer's death as winter tightens its grip.” – Henry Rollins


GRATITUDE GARLAND  Add your thankful thoughts to 2016’s paper-leaf gratitude garland the next time you visit the library.  Previous years’ editions are hung up all over the building.


MOVIE NIGHT  Join us for popcorn, soda, and a recent hit film.  This month we’ll be watching a movie about a boy, a bear, and a jaguar.  The film starts at 5:30 PM this Thursday the 17th, and we promise not to show 15 minutes of previews beforehand.


POKEMON HUNT  You may not catch them all, but you can find at least some new Pokemon cards this Saturday the 19th, starting at 3 PM.  We’ll also have a wide variety of games to help you earn your trainer’s badge.  And, as always, you can do battle for control of the library’s gym in Pokemon Go while you wait.



WEEKLY QUOTE  “Fear not November's challenge bold— We've books and friends, And hearths that never can grow cold: These make amends!” – Alexander Louis Fraser, Canadian writer


LIBRARY CLOSED  The library will be closed this Friday, November 11th, in honor of Veterans Day.  We will be open on Saturday as usual.
