WORD OF THE WEEK Causimomancy: a form of fortune-telling that involves observing objects placed in a fire.
HARRY POTTER This Saturday February 4th is “Take Your Child to the Library Day.” We’ll be hosting a variety of Harry-Potter-themed activities all day long, so stop in to learn about potions, the care of magical creatures, and more.
VALENTINES Stop in any time in February to check out our display of beautiful vintage Valentine’s cards. They are in both the rectangular and circular display cases next to the main desk.
FEBRUARY PROGRAMS February may be short on days, but we have plenty of programs to keep you busy. To start off the month children can make a cute candy holder on Thursday the 9th at 5 PM. Adults and older children can stop in to make paper flowers on the following Monday, the 13th, at 3 PM. Finally, we’ll be hosting the Thompson Park Zoo (with animal visitors) again on Friday the 24th at 2 PM. All of our monthly programs are in place, as well.

WALLET RAFFLE The Friends of the Library are raffling off two hand-made men’s leather wallets, on display next to the front desk. Tickets are $1 each and there will be two winners. This is your last chance - both drawings will be held this Friday, February 3rd.
JUST ARRIVED In young adult novels, read about two foster brothers dealing with a difficult life in A List of Cages or find the truth behind a girl’s disappearance in The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett. For romance and all its complications, try The Truth of Right Now, set in Manhattan, or Freeks, which takes place beneath the tents of an extraordinary circus. In the mood for something humorous? Try The Witch’s Vacuum Cleaner and Other Stories, a collection of short pieces by the late Terry Pratchett. In manga, we have the first several volumes of both One-Punch Man and Tokyo Ghoul.
