Our Halloween Party this year will be on Thursday, October 31st, from 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm. The costume contest, for ages 0-12, will begin at 5:30, and food will be served at 6. There will be games to play, prizes to win, and fun to be had! The Snyder Fire Department will also be paying us a visit and talking about safety with us! We can’t wait to dress up and have fun with everyone!! We hope to see you there.
(If you would like to help us decorate/setup, we will be doing so on the 29th at 6:30. And if you would like to volunteer in some way, please come in and talk with me about it!)
Last month’s Chess Club had three attendees, and this month’s only had one, but that’s okay. I got to teach chess to a patron who had never played it before! Hopefully we pick up our game again at the next Chess Club on the 30th.
At September’s BINGO Night, we had TEN people attend!! It was a lot of great fun and just about everybody got at least one BINGO. Today was October’s, and we had SEVEN patrons come in to play! We had to have it inside of the library today because the American Red Cross was set up in the auditorium.
BINGO Night has quickly shot right past Board Game Night as the favorite club! Everyone has such a good time playing, we provide drinks and snacks, and you get a neat prize for every BINGO you get. Hopefully this club will keep growing, and we can eventually hold a village-wide tournament or something! That would be awesome!!
Last month’s Gym Day had five attendees, and we had a great time playing kickball with a beach ball. This month’s Gym Day is next Wednesday, October 16th. This time, we will play with an actual kickball I bought for the library! And I’m sure we’ll play all kinds of things. Should be lots of fun!!
On Board Game Night last month, I unlocked the door to the sight of three young patrons sitting outside finger-knitting (with little rubber bands). I told them they could bring all of it inside, and they had a great time just sitting at the table and making things! They made me a bracelet! We ended the club night with a few games of Twister, which was a lot of fun to watch! They had never played it before, so it was interesting to teach them how to. Our next Board Game Night will be on October 23rd. Please come and play one of our many, many games, or teach us a new one!
I have also finally made a Facebook for the library! Check it out at https://www.facebook.com/necessitynotluxury/
We hope to see you at YOUR little Snyder Public Library soon!
