October offers a flurry of activities

Monday, Monday

Free pizza, fun, games, activities - what will we think of next? Meets on the second Monday of each month. This month's session is at 6 p.m. Monday Oct. 11 (school holiday). See what we have in store.

Grave matters

Even genealogists can be in tune with the spooky season if they join Louise Creighton at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 13 to move from dusty archives to spooky cemeteries. Registration is required.

Book business

The library runs two book groups currently for folks who want to share the reading experience without the organizational hassles of a book club. First up, readers go north of the border to investigate a Canadian cozy at 10 a.m. Thursday Oct. 14 as they discuss "Still Life," by Louise Penny. Then the Books for Breakfast crew take on a fascinating novel about an accidental bigamist at 9 a.m. Tuesday Oct. 19 as they discuss "The Wives of Henry Oades," by Johanna Moran. If you run your own book club, check our catalog for Book Club Kits or ask one of our librarians what to consider when you choose your next title to keep your personal book budget in line.

A harvest of crafts

Love to craft but hate the mess? Take advantage of some of our regular craft programs at the library including: Rubber Stamping and Card Making at 7 p.m. Thursday Oct. 14 with Missy Shipman (registration and $15 materials fee required); and basket workshop participants will make a little matches basket at 10 a.m. Saturday Oct. 16 (registration and a $15 materials fee are required). Skip the fees and keep the fun with In Stitches at 7 p.m. Wednesday Oct. 27, an informal sewing circle for local needle workers. Last on the schedule is Scrapbooking. Learn to make a wall-hanging calendar, scrapbook style at 7 p.m. Thursday Oct. 28 ($20 materials fee and registration is required).
