This month we are reading The Poisoned City by Anna Clarke.

Fall Storywalk is October 28 through October 31        

Pumpkin StoryWalk! Come read Pumpkin Trouble by Jan Thomas while you take a stroll with your family around the outside of the Bacon Library.  After you finish the story stop into the library for a Halloween treat! Description: Duck wants to surprise Pig and Mouse with a Halloween jack-o’-lantern, but when Duck suddenly disappears and a giant pumpkin monster appears, Pig and Mouse run for their lives, in a delightfully silly, holiday read-aloud.

Join us for a night of games at the library! The Nintendo Switch will be set up and the board games will be dusted off.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own games and Switches.

Bullet Journal is Wednesday, October 30 @ 6:30 p.m.

Bullet journaling is an organizational strategy that can lead to higher performance, more productivity and a satisfying feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day.  Learn new and simple planning techniques or tweak your existing strategies.  We will share monthly what worked and what didn’t and plan our coming months together.  We also will dive into hand lettering and layouts for those of you with a creative streak.  Please bring a notebook and something to write with.  A ruler and colored markers or highlighters would be nice as well but not necessary.
