TEENS: Banned Book Week

Banned Books Week (September 27 - October 3, 2020) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It spotlights current and historical attempts to censor books in libraries and schools. It brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types — in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

S'More Stories and Crafts

Starting Friday, October 2, 2020, tune in for Miss Alyisha's gently creepy Fall storytimes! These storytimes are perfect for preschool and early elementary-aged children.

Check here each week in October to hear about ghosts, mummies, and more!

Then pick up a pre-bagged, themed craft in the Children's Room, while supplies last (you'll find us on the middle floor of the Library).
