Star Wars Day

Star Wars started a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and it captured the imaginations of everyone who saw it.  Now another generation of Stars Wars is here and Northwest Branch Library wants to celebrate. Come dressed as your favorite character and join us Saturday, December 19th from 10 am to 4 pm.  In our meeting room will be Space City Sabers, a group that will teach kids 5+ light saber skills.  Tickets will be available 15 minutes before each session at the top of the hour 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm and 1 pm.  Space is limited to 10 kids per session.

Ho Ho Ho Mystery

Liss is surprised when an old friend from high school asks her to spend a week at the Christmas tree farm she recently inherited from a great-uncle. Realizing it would be the perfect chance for her and her husband Dan to get away from work, Liss happily accepts the offer and packs her bags for the tiny town of New Boston.It's hardly the idyllic vacation locale they'd hoped for, especially when needling neighbors start raising questions about the farm's dark history. Who was the man whose body was found neatly netted in a shipment of Scotch pine? Why did the owner vanish into thin air? And why are the trees growing so close together, forming a maze more twisted than a Celtic knot? What a Christmas mystery to unfold. History Mystery Book club will discuss this book on December 21, 2016 @ 2:00 PM.

Butterflies at the Library

butterfly wallbutterflyCelebrate citizenship month and create your own origami butterfly and leave the library a special message.  At the table near the children's area is a basket of paper and instructions, if you get stuck come and ask for help at the desk.  Once you are finished add it to our growing collection of butterflies.  We come from all over the world.  We embrace transformation, we make our way in faith, and we emerge from our transitions as brilliantly as the butterfly.  We also have caterpillars ready to emerge as painted lady butterflies. Come soon, we will be letting them go next week.
