We have had some rainy days lately, and the forecast is for more rainy days this coming weekend on Saturday and Sunday (October 31 and November 1).  One thing I like to do at home when it is raining is curl up in a chair with a good book.  How about you?  If that is a favorite rainy day activity for you, then head on out to the library and check out some books to enjoy during the rain days.  Your library has great fiction and nonfiction titles.  And, the library staff can help you find books you are looking for, as well as recommended some interesting titles to read.  See you soon and Happy Reading!
