This week’s story time was all about Halloween. Mrs. Cannon read two Halloween stories and followed up with a Halloween coloring craft. Following the story time, visitors got to visit the prize box and received a treat bag. We will continue our story time every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. for everyone who wishes to attend. The Book Buzz met this week. This month they read 35 books and discussed them during their meeting. The Book Buzz will meet again Nov. 17 instead of their usual fourth Thursday of the month.
On Saturday, we passed out Halloween treat bags to the children who came into the library because we were closed on Halloween. Our next event will be Friday at 7 p.m. at the Sharon City Park. We will be hosting a moon viewing conducted by Dr. Lionel Crews.
Remember we are consistently adding new books and DVDs to our collection, so stop by and check some out. Please remember to check out our website and Facebook for library program pictures and upcoming events.
We continue to take donations of paperback, hardcover books, DVDs and VHS tapes. The library continues to offer faxing and copying for a minimal fee. We also offer free paper shredding and free Wi-Fi.
