WEEKLY QUOTE  “To appreciate the wild and sharp flavors of these October fruits, it is necessary that you be breathing the sharp October or November air.  What is sour in the house a bracing walk makes sweet.  Some of these apples might be labeled, ‘To be eaten in the wind.’ It takes a savage or wild taste to appreciate a wild fruit.” – Henry David Thoreau


FAMILY BOOK CLUB  Join us this Thursday the 13th at 5 PM to discuss Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  We’ll be making sweet treats and talking about candy-making in both the real world and the fictional. 


PUMPKIN CANDLEHOLDERS  Children ages 7 and older can make their own pumpkin-themed candle holder out of an upcycled glass jar.  Small electric candle and all other materials will be provided.  The craft will begin at 3 PM this Saturday the 15th.


SOCIAL HOUR  Social hour will be tomorrow Wednesday the 12th at 2 PM.  Stop by for coffee, treats, and chats!


HALLOWEEN  Save the date for our Halloween party: Saturday the 29th from 3 – 5 PM.  We’ll have games, candy, and more.  (We’ve already started decorating, so watch out for cobwebs and creepy-crawlies the next time you visit.)


REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Story Time for ages 3 – 6, with picture books and crafts, is Wednesday at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help is this Saturday October 15th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Movie night with a spookily appropriate selection will be next Thursday the 20th at 5:30 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for the specifics on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  Thanks to some generous donations we’ve added several DVDs to our collection, including Slumdog Millionaire, The Right Stuff, and Under the Tuscan Sun.  We’ve also purchased some newer titles, like Captain America: Civil War and season six of The Walking Dead.  And, as always, we have new books to share.  Learn about the foundation of one of our First Amendment Rights – Freedom of the Press – in Indelible Ink, or go deeper into modern environmental conservation efforts and the Americans behind them in Rancher Farmer Fisherman.  Take a look at how and why we have fun – and how leisure activities from board games to music can improve our outlook and performance at work – in Play Anything.  Delve into the dark side of the world’s finances in the updated New Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.  Finally, exercise your creative muscles and learn how to write for children and young adults with The Magic Words.
