September 30, 2021 - Celebrate Fall

This coming weekend is our 2nd (possibly annual) Fall Harvest Celebration. Last year we offered a number of activities outside to celebrate Fall. We used the library grounds to keep everyone safe and follow public health guidelines. Those attending seemed to enjoy being outside enjoying our beautiful grounds, so we are doing much the same thing this year. Saturday, October 2nd, there were be free music, food, games, crafts and an award-winning children's musician, Laura Doherty,performing on the Market Street steps at noon. The activities run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and include story times by Ms Emily at The Rocks (the little park on across the street from the library on the West side), crafts for kids and adults, cookies and apple juice, pumpkin painting, and keyboard music performed by our own, Nolan Veldey. Be prepared for pup-up polkaing to occur on the patio. It is October after all, and the polka seems like a seasonally appropriate dance to engage in. We hope to see you there! And before, after, or during your attendance at this celebration, be sure to check out some of the new books ( or the old ones are good too!) that recently arrived at the library. Some of those titles are listed below. Enjoy!
