It’s Teen Read Week! This week, encourage your teens and older kids to pick up a book and remind themselves that reading can be a whole lot of fun. This Wednesday, October 11 at 3:30 p.m. we will celebrate with a special seasonal craft time for the teens and older kids: making light-up zombies with glowing eyes. They’re kind of creepy, kind of cool, and a whole lot of fun to make.

Every Tuesday at 4 p.m. we have storytime for the little ones. They can listen to a fun story and do a cute craft related to the story. This Tuesday, October 17, at 4 p.m. we will have a Fancy Nancy storytime. Next Tuesday, October 24, at 4 p.m. we will have a pumpkin storytime.

Our “Paint @ the Library” adult painting class will be on Saturday, October 14, at 12:30 p.m. and we will be painting a slightly-spooky autumn landscape. Class size is limited, so sign up today.

Come learn “How It’s Done” during our adult DIY program on Saturday, October 21, at 12:30 p.m. We’ll show you how to turn an ordinary light bulb into a cute jack-o-lantern.

National Friends of the Library Week is October 16 through October 21, and we would like to thank all of our Friends for the support they give us. We really appreciate all the folks who give their time and money to support the library. If you would like to join, stop by the library for the form.

The Jenkins County Memorial Library Board will meet at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 18, at the library. The Screven-Jenkins Regional Library Board will meet at 4 p.m. on Thursday, October 26, at the Screven County Library.

New at the library – “Georgia State Parks Discovery Backpack.” It’s a brand new offering from the Georgia State Parks. If you’re planning on going for a hike, borrow the special Georgia State Parks Discovery Backpack, which includes a backpack with pockets for all your stuff, a pair of binoculars with a case, and three nature guides to help you identify the birds, plants, and other wildlife you may encounter on your hike.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
