We are celebrating International Games Week! This afternoon, Wednesday, November 7, at 4 pm, we will be having our annual Games Week celebration, with all sorts of games from card and dice games to video games like various Mario titles and much more. We’ll also have some light refreshments to enjoy while you play, so come in and play with us!

On Saturday, November 10, at 11 am, we will have our monthly Paint @ the Library adult painting class. This month, we’ll be painting squirrels. Space is limited, so sign up today!

Every Tuesday at 4 pm we have our afterschool storytime, where kids can come to listen to a story and do a fun craft related to the story. It’s a great way to help kids learn to read better! This Tuesday, November 13, we will have an apple-themed storytime. Next Tuesday, November 20, we’ll talk about Thanksgiving.

We’ve got a fun new monthly program we’re starting this month: STEAM Days! This month’s STEAM Day will be on Friday, November 16, at 4 pm, and we’ll have our Little- Bits out for all ages to enjoy. LittleBits are miniature circuits which can be put together to do all sorts of neat things. Come in and experiment – see what you can make!

The library will be closed from Thursday, November 22, through the Thanksgiving weekend. We will reopen on Monday, November 26, at 10:30 am.

New at the library – “Elevation” by Stephen King. Scott Carey doesn’t look like there’s anything wrong with him, but he’s been steadily losing weight – and there’s no difference in his weight whether he’s wearing clothes or not. Scott has also been engaged in a low-grade feud with a lesbian couple who are trying to open a new restaurant – but the restaurant hasn’t been doing well, mostly because of prejudice against them. Once he sees that, he becomes an unlikely ally. Between that, the annual foot race, and Scott’s mysterious affliction, somehow the situation brings out the best in the people of Castle Rock and helps to heal the wounds left by their former strife.

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