Movie and Popcorn Monday

OH NO! –you just realized Monday, October 14th is Columbus day – a school holiday!   What are you going to do with the kids?   Before you panic you should know that the library is not only open, we are also offering a free movie complete with popcorn, courtesy of the Friends of Maud Marks Library.  The movie (we can’t print the movie title online) is an animated family adventure.   The story takes place on another planet in another time. A thousand  years ago a  mysterious crystal was damaged by one of the Urskeks and an age of chaos began!  Characters include an  evil race of grotesque birdlike lizards  ( Skeksis)  and  gnomish dragons who rule their fantastic planet with an iron claw.

It's a Week Away!

Ready to get an early start on those Christmas presents?  Want to give something to the community at the same time?  Come to the Maud Marks Library next Saturday for our Friends of the Maud Marks Library Booksale.  Come see our vast selection of used books, magazines, DVDs, videos, and CDs, all at rock bottom prices.

Best of all, when you buy from the Friends Booksale, you are supporting the library and all we do for the community.  The Friends support our craft programs, book clubs, and more as well as buying us new books and equipment.  Support the library and get something in return.

"Cool It !"

I'm talking about the weather! Soon, I hope, cooler weather will be here. I love Fall. I love the cooler weather and all the beautiful fall colors. I also love to decorate my house with autumn colors using leaves and candles and wreaths.  I'm making a beautiful fall wreath and you will never guess what I am going to use. It's kind of an unusual material to use to make a wreath but it really does turn out beautifully - I promise! smiley  If you would like to make one too come to the DIY craft day next week, Oct. 9th at 2 PM. in the meeting room. I promise you will have a grand time. Have I piqued your interest?  If you want to participate you will have to Click here to sign up.
