AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS  Take a trip into the future or into the past with H. G. Wells or Edgar Rice Burroughs, chill your bones with the supernatural monsters of Stephen King or the more human monsters of Agatha Christie, explore the first half of the 20th century with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Upton Sinclair, or Truman Capote, and sit down with a book of poetry from O Henry, T. S. Eliot, or Shel Silverstein.  We have books by (and movies based on books by) these authors on display to celebrate their September birthdays.  As always, there are more authors on display than we have space to mention here, and more books available in the stacks than we have space to display.  Check them out!


SOCIAL HOUR  Come to the library to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats this Wednesday the 9th from 2 – 3 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.  This week’s theme is pets, and we’ll be reading from the new Dr. Seuss book What Pet Should I Get?.  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome. 


JUST ARRIVED  Looking for some self-help advice?  Try Ashley Rickards’s A Real Guide to Really Getting It All Together Once And For All (Really) or The Complete Detox Workbook, both recent additions to our nonfiction collection.  Over in the biographies we’ve added a new look at Britain’s Prince Charles titled Born to be King.  If you’re feeling nostalgic for the 1960s, read So Many Roads: The Life and Times of the Grateful Dead or Dylan Goes Electric: Newport, Seeger, Dylan, and the Night That Split the Sixties.  For teens, we’ve added several new books with a supernatural twist.  David Levithan’s Another Day is a companion novel to his 2012 work Every DayThis Broken Wondrous World features the son of Frankenstein’s monster trying to prevent a war.  Finally, The Accident Season exposes the secrets hidden by a young woman’s family and the reasons why October is so dangerous for them.


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 this Friday, September 11th.  Check our website, Facebook, or physical location to see the prizes.
