Welcome to September at the library.  With the weather cooling, we have programming for all ages and, as always, the latest books and DVDs available on our shelves.  Stop in to try something new or revisit an old favorite.


COMPUTER HELP  Need help creating electronic documents, navigating the internet, or using your new eReader?  We can help.  Drop in tonight (September 1st) from 6 – 7.  Call ahead for an appointment or just bring in your questions.


SOCIAL HOUR  Our next social hour is Wednesday the 9th at 2 PM.  Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.

TEEN CRAFT  Teens can make magnets to decorate their lockers on Saturday, September 19th, at 1:30 PM.



ADULT CRAFT  This month we’ll be making fall-themed bookends.  By request, we’re having two sessions: one in the morning from 11 AM – 12:30 PM on Monday, September 19th, and one in the evening from 6 PM – 7:30 PM on Monday, September 28th.



POKEMON CARD HUNT  Children can catch ‘em all – or at least some – on Saturday September 26th at 1:30 PM.


MUSIC AND MOVEMENT Toddlers are invited to shake out their sillies every Tuesday at 10 AM. We’ll have music in the air, instruments to play along, parachutes to hide under, and more. Meet other area families and come dance with us!


STORY TIME Every Wednesday at 10:30 AM we share a picture book (or two) and do a simple craft.  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome. 


JUST ARRIVED In picture books this week we have the newly-discovered Dr. Seuss book What Pet Should I Get?.  If your child enjoyed The Day the Crayons Quit, they’ll like the follow-up The Day the Crayons Came Home.  We also have new books by award-winning authors for middle-grade children.  Avi’s latest, Old Wolf, tells the story of a boy on his first bow-hunting trip.  Louis Sachar’s Fuzzy Mud examines the results of both bullying and mad science.  Rebecca Stead tells the story of a girl with some difficult choices to make in Goodbye Stranger.  Finally, on the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, Denise Lewis Patrick revisits the disaster and destruction in New Orleans with her novel Finding Somewhere.  We’ve added something for young adults, too.  As teens head back to school, they can be glad they aren’t sharing classes with some of the characters in this week’s crop of new books.  The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall aren’t just dead, they’re also haunting a house that’s determined to add to their number.  Con Academy features two students who lied their way into an exclusive prep school and are now competing with each other to stay there.  Finally, the title of Slasher Girls & Monster Boys – a collection of short stories by popular authors – speaks for itself.


RAFFLE  Don’t forget our Fall wreath raffle to support the Friends of the Library!  Tickets are just 50 cents each or three for $1.    We have three hand-decorated wreaths available, but the raffle ends next Friday, September 11th.


HOLIDAY  The library will be closed this Saturday, September 5th and next Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day.
