SOCIAL HOUR  Join us for coffee, cookies, and conversation this Wednesday the 10th at 2 PM.


ADULT CRAFT  We’ll be making candleholders out of wineglasses this Thursday the 11th at 2 PM.  You can make it spooky or seasonal; the Friends of the Library provide the materials, and the choice of result is yours.

BLOOD SLIME  If your children think our previous slime-making classes weren’t gross enough, bring them in to make (fake) blood slime this Thursday the 11th at 4 PM.  This activity is aimed at ages 7 – 12.


REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Stories and Songs, for ages 2 – 4, is on Saturdays at 10:30 AM.  Call the library or check online for all of the details on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  We have a mix of fiction and nonfiction books for you this week.  Want to skip Halloween and head straight to Christmas?  Try Debbie Macomber’s newest novel, Alaskan Holiday, for a snowy romance.  Jodi Picoult’s latest, A Spark of Light, deals with a gunman’s invasion of a woman’s health clinic.  In Lisa Unger’s Under My Skin a woman struggles to separate fact from nightmare after the murder of her husband.  A Long Time Coming is a mystery by Aaron Elkins, featuring a curator tracking down artworks stolen during the Second World War.  Kate Atkinson’s Transcription also looks back to the 1940s, through the eyes of a young woman working for the spies of MI5.  Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan novels continue in Line of Sight by Mike Maden.  In the latest volume of Clive Cussler’s Oregon Files, Shadow Tyrants, the group of mercenaries fights to save the world from a two thousand year old conspiracy.  On the nonfiction shelves, Vincent’s Portraits sets aside van Gogh’s more famous landscapes and still-lifes to examine how he looked at and painted people, while An American Princess by Annejet van der Zijl follows the varied life of the often-married, convention-breaking socialite Allene Tew.  Thanks to the Tony-winning Broadway musical, Alexander Hamilton has become very popular of late; you can now learn more about his New-York-born wife in Eliza Hamilton.  In more modern times, Philip Connors returns to the scene of his first book, Fire Season, telling of his explorations in and around the Gila Wilderness in A Song for the River.
