Open House

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.

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.
