Hello, everyone! September is here! With it, hopefully some cooler weather and a nice, long autumn for us all. Definitely not ready for winter again in just a few months!
August was an easy month for the library – a nice break after the Summer Reading Program and everything. We finally got our beautiful slat wall put up! The library is officially finished furniture-wise, unless we change the chairs or the carpet or something, but that’s a long ways off from now. It’s nice and cozy inside our little library – full of books, magazines, and DVDs for you to check out! I just added a whole bunch of new books and movies for y’all; Ferdinand, Ready Player One, 12 Strong, and Baby Driver are the newest movies we’ve added, and for books, we now have the Game of Thrones series, the Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter series, the Legend of Drizzt book series, and many more! Come check them out!
I also started up Library Club Nights. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do these last six years of being a librarian, and I like to offer the clubs as a way for patrons to come and relax and have fun in their library, while learning new things and making new friends!
First, we had Chess Club, and I had three kids come to learn how to play the game. One of them nearly beat me, and they had never even played before! We’re going to continue our game at our next meeting, on September 12th. Unfortunately, I didn’t have anybody come for the first meetings of the other two clubs, the Writing Club and the Young Adult Book Club. But I know patrons are interested in them, so hopefully they’ll be able to make it to the next meetings on September 19th and September 26th! This Wednesday, September 5th, is our first Dungeons & Dragons/Game Night Club! I hope we get some patrons to come to this one – I’ve never had the pleasure of playing D&D yet, and would like to learn with some other people! And if that’s not your thing, I’ve got plenty of other games to play!
Library Club Nights are every Wednesday afternoon, from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm. They’re all planned out until the end of the year already, so don’t worry about missing one or two! There’s about five meetings for each of them this year, and hopefully there’ll be plenty more in 2019!
I hope you can all come to the library soon to use the computer and WiFi, check something out, or join one of our new clubs! Everyone is always welcome! September is also Library Card Sign-up Month, so come on down and sign up if you haven’t already!
