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.
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 hours will be this Saturday the 19th from 11 AM – 12 PM and next Tuesday the 22nd from 6 – 7 PM. Call the library or check out our website for the details on all of our upcoming events.
BOOK SALE Thank you to everyone who volunteered and/or bought items at the Friends’ book sale. Your contributions help to fund library programming and other purchases throughout the year.
JUST ARRIVED Is your child not willing to let go of Halloween quite yet? Then give them Roberta Simpson Brown’s Scariest Stories Ever Told for some November shivers. For something just as adventurous but slightly gentler, try The Lazy Dragon and the Bumblespells Wizard. And if you have a fan of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books in your house, you’ll want to pick up the latest installment, Double Down. In young adult fiction, we have two stories of teenaged artists dealing with some very heavy matters. A. S. King’s Still Life with Tornado sees a girl looking for originality while encountering her time-traveling self, and Rani Patel In Full Effect features a young rapper working through childhood traumas and current bad decisions.
We welcome your QUESTIONS, COMMENTS, CONCERNS, PURCHASE REQUESTS, AND PROGRAMMING IDEAS.

WEEKLY HOURS are 9 AM to 8 PM Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, and 9 AM to 5 PM on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
