WEEKLY QUOTE  "September's Baccalaureate / A combination is / Of Crickets -- Crows -- and Retrospects / And a dissembling Breeze // That hints without assuming -- / An Innuendo sear / That makes the Heart put up its Fun / And turn Philosopher." – Emily Dickinson, American poet


LIBRARY HOURS  The library will be closed in observance of Labor Day on Monday, September 5th.  Our regular 9 – 5 Saturday hours will return next week (on the 10th.)


SEPTEMBER PROGRAMMING  Computer help will be offered on the 3rd, 6th, 17th, and 27th.  These are personalized, drop-in sessions on a first-come, first-serve basis, designed to help you get started with basic computer use.  Social hour has been moved to the 21st, to make way for a “Welcome (Back) to the Library” Open House on Monday the 12th.  Our indoor and outdoor handicapped access lifts are both repaired, and we want you to come help us celebrate.  Movie night will be the 22nd.  In crafts, children ages 9 and up can create back back-to-school Tetris-themed magnets for their lockers on the 10th.  Finally, we have two new book clubs – one designed for families to read together on the 15th, and one for comic book lovers on the 29th.

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 will be held tonight and next Tuesday the 30th and the 6th from 6 PM – 7 PM and this Saturday the 3rd from 11 AM – 12 PM.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  Take your child on far-flung adventures with some of our new picture books.  Duck Duck Porcupine follows three animal friends, while the wordless Return features a father rescuing his daughter from the dangers of a magical land.  Mary Had a Little Glam showcases a school full of fashionable children, and There’s a Bear in my Chair stars a very small mouse with a very large problem.  Children reading and adventuring on their own can travel to a galaxy far, far away with the 4th in the new Jedi Academy series, or stick closer to home with a boy hiding a strange secret in This is Not a Werewolf Story.  They might even try solving mysteries in Knightly & Son: 3 of a Kind or My Gym Teacher is an Alien Overlord.  Finally, to make communicating on your grand adventure easier, check out Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, a nonfiction book that lays out the basics of Morse code, semaphore, and more.
