WEEKLY QUOTE  "The breezes taste Of apple peel. The air is full Of smells to feel- Ripe fruit, old footballs, Burning brush, New books, erasers, Chalk, and such." – John Updike, American author


TETRIS MAGNETS  Children ages nine and up can make colorful wooden block magnets for their lockers.  Join us this Saturday, September 10th at 2 PM for fun.


OPEN HOUSE  We’re celebrating the completion of two long construction projects, and we want you to join us.  Take a ride in the outdoor lift and the indoor elevator and grab a slice of cake next Monday, the 12th, from open to close.  If you haven’t been to the library in a while, this is the perfect chance to drop in and see what’s new.


FAMILY BOOK CLUB  This Fall, the library will be hosting a book club where families can read and discuss a book together.  The meetings will include snacks, crafts, games, and plenty of conversation.  Come learn how to join next Thursday, the 15th, at 5 PM.  Our first selection is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, by Roald Dahl.  You do not have to purchase your own copy or read the book before the meeting.

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 the 6th from 6 PM – 7 PM.  Social Hour is the 21st, and Movie Night is the 22nd.  Call the library or check out our website for details on all of our upcoming events. 


DONATIONS  The library will begin accepting donations of books and DVDs in good condition next Thursday, the 15th in preparation for the Friends’ next book sale.  Thank you very much for your patience and your generosity.


SUMMER READING  Our summer reading programs have ended.  Thank you to all who participated, and congratulations to the raffle winners!  We hope everyone had fun and discovered some new favorites along the way. 


JUST ARRIVED  Our spotlight is on young adult books this week.  Take a trip through fantastic landscapes with Riverkeep or The Black North.  An heiress in the 1820s tries to untangle a skein of mystery and murder in The Gilded Cage, while a group of modern teens just tries to survive a weekend gone wrong in Three Truths and a Lie.  Finally, we’ll wrap up with a look at more realistic fiction.  All We Have Left follows two girls affected by the September 11th terrorist attacks.  Whatever and The Bad Decisions Playlist both feature ordinary boys confronting new truths about themselves and the world around them.
