HARRY POTTER FOR PRESIDENT!
Or…how about Katniss Everdean? Or maybe Captain Underpants? Students age 8 to 12 will have a chance to manage the campaign of their favorite characters as Aleea Davey-Bostic guides them through a literary version of the actual election process. Every Tuesday evening, October 11th through 8 November, 6:00 to 7:00 PM, the Library will host nominations, mini-debates, the election itself and finally a gala inaugural ball! Find more details at www.facebook.com/literaryelection then take part in this exciting program!
MEET OUR BOOK BUDDIES
On the second Tuesday of each month, our Book Buddies meet to help anyone who needs read-aloud practice. Each Buddy is a certified therapy dog and has passed Canine Good Citizen training. Even better–they love to listen and they NEVER criticize. Bring your own book or borrow some of ours. Book Buddies will be ready to go at 6:00 PM.
CALLING ALL MASTER BUILDERS:
School’s out but the fun continues–Everything is awesome at LEGO Night! Stop by November 10th from 6 to 7:00 p.m. Fun for the entire family, master builders to beginners. All welcome to join the fun!
All the Colors of Autumn—and More!
It’s the Library’s version of a trip to the spa. Color away a drab day, a stressful week, a case of the glums. It even works when everything’s going just fine, too! Meet other enthusiasts. Enjoy some tasty treats and a cup of coffee or tea. Drop in on Thursday, 17 November, 6:00 PM.
Color-pages and art supplies will be waiting. This Art-for-Adults event is open to teens and adults.
It’s one of our favorite Halloween traditions around here–an evening of fright-free Halloween fun for good listeners (and those who like to play along too) age three and up. Pop your costume on for a trial run and join us at 6:30 PM on Thursday, 27 October. There will be a slightly-spooky craft project and –who knows?– maybe an actual Trick-or-Treat!
Socrates Café: a Discussion Group for Adults
What will the results of the upcoming election say about Americans as a people? Join us for a very lively discussion at the Bloomsburg Library at 6:00 PM, 1 November.
Ola! IT’S DIA DE LOS MUERTES!
On Thursday, 3 November, good listeners age three and up are invited to drop by and find out about Day of the Dead, one of the most popular holidays celebrated by our neighbors to the South–Mexicans! There will be stories and a traditional craft project. It all begins at 6:30 PM. (P.S.–It’s also Pajamatime, so wear your PJs.)
