Brothers Grimm - A Spooky Classic

Brothers Grimm

Join us on Monday, October 25th @ 2:00 pm for Classic Readers Book Club. We will be discussing the fairytales of the Brothers Grimm. Why fairytales in October? Well, many of our modern day "Disney-ized" tales have some darker origins. The Brothers Grimm wrote and documented tales of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow White and Little Red Riding Hood. You might be surprised at the original text! They are often VERY different than those animated cartoons we all know and love.

Are you ready for some...

GhostHalloween fun? Here's what's going on at the library on Saturday, October 30th.

Thanksgiving

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving season? Share your gratitude with us. Come into the library and fill out a "leaf". Write down who or what you are thankful for. We will add it to our ever-changing and ever-growing tree display. By Thanksgiving, the tree will be in full bloom with our collective gratitude.

It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No it's...MY LIBRARIAN!?

Have you ever wanted to skydive? This Thursday, Northwest Branch Librarian Deborah Sica and circulation assistant Connie Villa will do just that! Now you might be asking yourself “who would want to jump out of a perfectly good plane?” Well, if you’ve ever seen Deborah arrive for work on her motorcycle then you already know she’s not exactly your grandmother’s librarian. As for Connie, she has worked previously as an airline attendant for 12 years, so this probably isn’t her first inclination to want to jump. Both women are incredibly fearless, and for this we applaud them (and wish them lots of luck). Check back soon for actual photos.
