Flame colored leaves have fled. Woodstoves sit cold longing for a chill in the air to release their plumes. Fall is here but warmth lingers on. If you are craving a sort of warmth that is in the heart and not from a well worn sweater, just grab a good book, a hot beverage and a comfy chair. Fall will arrive in your heart!

Due to the Veteran’s Day holiday   this week’s arrivals include those from last week as well . We thank you for your patience and share the following:

November has arrived!

 

So much is happening here at the Wead Library during the month of November.  Two big holidays will be observed,  Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving Day.  We will be closed on Friday, November 11 in honor of our brave veterans. Thanksgiving day, November 24th, will also have us closing. We are looking forward to enjoying the holidays with friends and family. We hope all of our patrons are able to enjoy the same.

Here is a list of what is happening this month. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 518-483-5251.

Story hours for children will continue and are scheduled on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm and Wednesday and Thursday mornings at 11:00AM.  More information can easily be found by clicking on the Children’s tab just underneath our banner.

On Friday evenings we have some great movies planned for all the family. There will be no movie on Friday, the eleventh of November.  The “Movie” tab above will give you much more information on this fun weekly event.

Our good friend Ranger, the therapy dog, has returned from his summer hiatus ready to please your little ones with his kind and friendly disposition.  Ranger visits on the third Wednesday of each month at 3:00pm.  You will fall in love with Ranger as we all here at the library have. He is just a great dog.

Did you know we have a craft group that meets on the first and third Saturdays of the month at 10:00am?  We have knitters, crocheters, sewists, weavers and other creatives who come to enjoy the fellowship of kindred spirits. Bring your craft to work on and share with this fun group.

Need advice for your device? Every Wednesday from 2-3:00pm we offer Tech Talk. We can help you with many of the issues that can beset your phone, tablet or laptop. We can even help with digital cameras. This is a free service and is first come first serve.

Who doesn’t like Legos? Our Lego group has been a big success. We welcome all Lego lovers eight years of age and up. All children must be accompanied by an adult as well. We supply the Legos, you supply the enthusiasm. This fun event takes place on the third Saturday of each month. Hope to see you there!

Grandma Helen is back on Friday afternoons ready to read to your children. She will be sharing books on Friday afternoons from 2-4:00pm.

The Wead Library Book Club is reading and discussing Pilgrim’s Progress this month and will meet on November 17th at 4:00pm.

Last but not least, the Wead Library Board of Trustees Will convene Monday at 7:00pm on November 21st.

We do have a special visit from author Audrey Ashline Svec planned. She will be discussing her new novel, “Venetian Sunset” on Thursday, November 17th at 6:00pm. Of course this discussion   is free to the public.

Much more information regarding these events can be had by just clicking the tabs above.

Happy Thanksgiving

and safe travels.
