The first week in November is full of activity for the whole family at the Adams Memorial Library. On Saturday, November 1, we have a special event for retiring librarian Rosemary Gunn. Rosemary has been a smiling face at the library for over 15 years and everyone is sad to see her leave but excited for her future as a woman of leisure.
Celebrate her career from 1 to 3 P. M. The celebration will be held in the Jennings Community Room on the lower level of the library.
On Monday, November 3, adult literature lovers are invited to stop in and join the Library book club. Come to the front door of the library at 6:30 p.m. to join the group reading Annie Freeman's Famous Traveling Funeral by Kris Radish. Everyone is welcome even if you didn't get a chance to read the book.
In November, toddler stories will be held on Mondays, November 3 & 17 and Preschool Stories will be held on Tuesdays, November 4 & 18, at the Adams Memorial Library. Story-times will be held at the Auburntown Branch on Wednesdays, November 5, 13, and 19. All story-times begin at 10:30 A. M.
Remember if you have a talent you'd like to share or an idea for a program you'd like to lead or present, come by and let us know. We are always looking for new activities and programs to schedule for the Cannon County community. Don't think you're the only one who has your interests. If you lead a program you may find new friends who enjoy the same things you do. Give it a try. The library staff is here to help you bring your joy to others. If leading a program seems like a big first step, come by and volunteer to help out around the library. There is always a lot to do and we always have a lot of fun doing it. This includes Auburntown, too.
As we enter the holiday time of year, the library is preparing events to ring in the season with joy and laughter. There might even be a visit by a fat man in a red suit. Who could that be? Until then watch this space for the weekly library update so you don't miss any events you might want to attend. And, if you're wondering who won the Annual Pizza Taste-off, then stop in and find out who our teen & 'tween panel of experts voted for in this year's taste-off event.
This is your library - come early, stay all day and take books home for free.
