STAR WARS Celebrate Star Wars Reads Day with us on Saturday, October 10th. We’ll have crafts, games, and – of course – books. Prepare for the new movie, learn the ways of the Force, and defeat bad guys. Activities begin at 2 PM, but you can start reading any time.
CONSTRUCTION Thank you to the City for removing and repaving our handicapped parking space. The new surface should last for years to come and provide better access to the new lift when it is installed.

SOCIAL HOUR Our monthly gathering of coffee, treats, and conversation will be next week on Wednesday the 14th at 2 PM. Take a break from the Fall weather to warm your body and your mind.
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.
MOVIE NIGHT Movie Night returns for the Fall with a new family-friendly classic. The lights go down at 5:30 PM this Thursday the 17th, so come early to get your popcorn!
