WEEKLY QUOTE  "For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad." – Edwin Way Teale, American naturalist and author


LIBRARY CLOSED  The library will be closed next Monday October 10th.  


ADIRONDACK MUSEUM  This weekend is your last chance to use the library’s discount pass for the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake.  Stop in or call for all the details before the museum closes for the season on October 10th.


FAMILY BOOK CLUB  Join us next 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.  While you’re reading this Fall’s book club selection, why not also check out the newly-published Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary to help puzzle out all of the author’s unique vocabulary?

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-on computer help is tonight the 4th from 6 – 7 PM and next Saturday October 15th from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Social hour will be next week on Wednesday the 12th at 2 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for the specifics on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  Dive into high-school in young adult fiction with an underachieving detective in Running Girl and a senior whose path to graduation gets complicated when her classmates start catching fire in Spontaneous, or journey to strange lands with 8 Rivers of Shadow and The Forgetting.  In chapter books for elementary-aged children, try Two Naomis, about a pair of girls figuring out what family means, Catching a Storyfish, about finding your voice in a strange place, or Children of Exile, about searching for home and the truth in a dismal future.  Younger children can travel to the zoo with Stripes the Tiger (a small housecat who dreams of something bigger) and Can One Balloon Make an Elephant Fly? (one boy’s question to his mother); go down to the farm with Duck on a Tractor; or explore their own backyard in Hank’s Big Day: The Story of a Bug.  We also have picture books about a regal newborn (King Baby) and an adorable cat (Max at Night.)  Finally, celebrate the start of the Halloween season with the picture book The Mystery of the Haunted Farm (featuring three little ghostbuster pigs) or the graphic novel Ghosts, where two sisters explore a town hiding some spooky secrets.
