WEEKLY QUOTE “October is the fallen leaf, but it is also a wider horizon more clearly seen. It is the distant hills once more in sight, and the enduring constellations above them once again.” – Hal Borland, American author
COMIC BOOK CLUB Meet your fellow comic book and graphic novel fans, discuss your favorite characters and plots, and just generally have fun this Thursday October 27th at 3:30 PM.

BOOK SALE The Friends of the Library are holding their Fall book sale next week, starting at 5 PM on Thursday November 3rd and continuing through Saturday the 5th. Join the Friends for a 50% discount on Thursday night only. Stop by once or more for many new deals.
POKEMON HUNT Come catch ‘em all – or at least pick up a few new cards for your deck. Search the library for Pokémon cards, battle gym leaders, and throw Pokéballs starting at 1:30 this Saturday the 26th. Defeat every challenge to earn your own trainer’s certificate.
ADULT CRAFT This month we’ll be making fall-themed bookends out of burlap, thread, and paint. If you missed yesterday’s session, we’re having another one next Monday evening (the 28th) from 6 PM – 7:30 PM. Materials will be provided, courtesy of the Friends of the Library, but you can always bring your own “notions” from home for a truly personalized project.
SEED LIBRARY If you borrowed seeds from our collection (or even if you didn’t,) now is the time to think about helping us restock. We’re looking for viable seeds, preferably from heirloom varieties of edibles, herbs, and flowers. Just collect the seeds from a healthy plant, label the envelope, and return. If you’re new to the process, we have books that can show you the steps for different kinds of seeds. All donations are appreciated and will help us keep this service going next year.
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.
FALL WREATH RAFFLE Summer isn’t over yet, but we all know that Fall is around the corner.
