Plans for a Rainy October

October is one of my favorite months. Not only do the leaves turn amazing colors, the weather begin to be a bit chilly, and hot chocolate come back in style, but it is the perfect season to begin reading avidly and make trips to the library a regular occurrence!

Come check out that book you have always wanted to read!

This month, the library is bustling with activity! Here is a quick rundown of what we have going on:

1. October 10th (tonight): Salvatore Chiarella, an Italian tenor, is coming to sing at our library tonight. He will sing traditional Italian songs to celebrate October being Italian Heritage Month. Give us a call to reserve a seat! It isn't too late to come hear "O Sole Mio" and go home with a smile.

2. Kids Helping Kids: What is better than cute little guys and gals putting together "get well" blankets for kids at Goryeb Children's Hospital. Bring your child by for our Blanket Bee, on October 11th at 4:30 PM. All blankets made will be donated to the Children's Hospital.

3. Pumpkin Carving competition: Bring out the competitor in your family! We are hosting the first annual Pumpkin Competition. All you need to do is bring in your carved pumpkin between Oct. 24th - 27th. First, second and third place winners will win Bragging Rights as we show off the winners on Facebook and this lovely blog on October 29th. Pumpkin fame could be just a couple of carves away. One pumpkin submission per family. 

When in doubt...

4.  Stuffed Animal Sleepover: Back by popular demand! Do you know a little child who has a favorite toy? All children from toddlers to 3rd grade are invited to come Oct. 24th at 6:30 PM for our famous stuffed animal sleepover. Join us in reading some very cool bedtime stories and tucking the stuffed animals into bed. Your stuffed animals love libraries and while they stay the night they get into all sorts of mischief! Pick them up the next day and find out what adventures happened during their night in the library!
