October Fun

They say time flies when you are having fun, and it’s true. From meeting the many different groups that use the library. From the Knitting Group, to the Scrap Book Group, the Book Club, and meeting everyone else, it has been a fun filled busy three weeks. Things are changing here at the library along with the leaves on the trees. Paula has decorated the library with a wonderful fall / Halloween theme and my many thanks to her for undertaking that task. The library is now ready to face the new season.

I lived in Salem, MA for four years, the Halloween capital, as I call it. Where Halloween is more than just one day out of the year, it’s a whole month worth of celebration of all things spooky and mystical. To help your family to get into that Halloween sprit (maybe just a little early) we have display of books for children and young adults, which contain monsters, magic and scary stories as their main themes.

If books are not what you are looking for, you are in luck, on Oct 4th at 1pm the library is hosting Mary Jo Maichak an award winning storyteller. She has stories that will sure to bring out your Halloween sprit. Please keep in mind that this program does contain some scary stories that might not be appropriate for children under the age of 5.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone who has welcomed me into the community; it has been great to meet you all.
