Fall Programming and Future Programs

Fall brings mixed feelings for me. On one hand, I love the changing color of the leaves, watching the corn being harvested, and Thanksgiving. On the other side of the coin, it means winter is not far behind. It also might mean that one's activities are more of an indoor nature. So if you are looking to do or activities for your children, the Library might be the place to be. Our Fall Youth Services programs have begun and we are excited about the fun programs to held for youth of all ages. If you are interested, please check our the Library's website ( and click on the links for Children's Fall Programming and Teen Fall Programming. I hope your family joins us for these outstanding programs. If you are not familiar with our book or audiovisual collection, I encourage you to check these collections out.

There are two events the library is working on to have as programs later this Fall and beginning of next year (2010). For Veteran's Day, the Library is working on a project involving a Hero's Tree to honor our veterans. We are also working on a project involving young children reading to therapy dogs. Many libraries have to type of program and is often referred to as Paws to Read. Its purpose to encourage young children to read and hopefully foster a love of reading in the child. More information about these two new programs should be coming later this Fall.

As always, please let me know if I can be of any assistance.

Best regards,

Ware W. Wimberly III, Director
