New Hours & Inspiration

It’s back to school time!  And with the changing of the seasons our Library will also change our hours to better accommodate programming.  Library Hours from September through May will be, Monday-Thursday, 10am-5pm with Friday & Saturday, 9am-noon.

The following is an inspiring message shared by one of our faithful Summer Readers who will be in Second Grade this Fall:

I like reading because … joke books make me laugh!  Nonfiction books help me learn about different people and places.  Books help me write sentences.  My favorite book when I was little was Pete the Cat books and now my favorite books are Junie B. Jones books and The Baby-Sitters Club books.  I like the library because I get to spend time with my grandma and my friends.  In the summer I come to programs and get to see one of my friends, her name is Olivia.  My favorite part about reading is that it makes me smart!!! By Olivia Boley, daughter of Jamie & Krista Boley

Summer Reading Barnes & Noble gift card winners will be announced in next week’s paper.

Come and join us and learn about, ‘Asahi’ an exercise program that began in Helsinki, Finland in 2005.  Margaret Vainio from Asahi Nordic Exercise will be here on Thursday, September 7th at 12:30pm to give a demonstration of this exercise program that focuses on health and wellbeing.

Here’s a fun start to Fall for the little ones as the big kids begin their school year … Story Time will be offered this Fall for 3-year-olds to attend with an adult caregiver.  Story Time will take place Thursday mornings at 9 am for 8 weeks, September 7-October 26.  We’ll meet about an hour to play, read, sing, & create.  Please stop by the library to register your child.

If you are unable to attend Story Time, the library also hosts 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.  In this program you simply record points and pick out a small prize for each 100 books read.  Let us know of your interest and we can sign your child up and help you get started.

The Friends of the Library will meet on Thursday, September 7th at 5pm.  We’ll be finalizing our plans for our booth at The Copper Falls Fall Fest.  Join us!

Conversation & Crafts will hold a reunion (New members always welcome!) on Thursday, September 7th at 7pm.  Bring your handcrafts and join fellow crafters at the table.  Share what you’ve been working on and/or what you’ve been up to.

Stop by anytime and enjoy The Friends Place.  A beautiful spot to recharge while enjoying the view of the Penokees.

If you’re out for a walk-through town, stop by The Friends’ Little Free Library at Gilman Park.  Take a book.  Share a book.

Please note that the library will be closed on September 4th for Labor Day.

Hope to see you soon at the Library!
