Library News for November 5, 2021 | Culture & Leisure
Our October programs ended on a freezing and windy Saturday morning with the Library Halloween Party. The clouds and wind didn’t dampen the spirits of all of the kids (and their adults sometimes too) who showed up in disguise to play games, listen to stories, do crafts, and enjoy the spooky decorations that surrounded the library. the magician entertained the crowds and made astonishing demonstrations of conjuring (from French / Latin meaning nimble or quick fingers) despite the cold. Our next event, this one will be mostly indoors – now that the November and fall temperatures have arrived – on November 13, when we will be celebrating Dino (saures) day at the library. Dinosaurs are the theme of the whole month. Check out our website or FaceBook page for more information. Daylight saving time disappears next weekend. I am an early riser so I appreciate the morning light. But night falls so quickly once we get back to normal time. Which, on reflection, prolongs the evenings; which, on second thought, means more time for reading! There is a November reading program / challenge that runs throughout the month of November, so make the most of those long evenings by reading and then saving your books in the BeanStack app. More information is available on our website. In the meantime, here are some of the new books recently arrived at the library. Enjoy!
