Blind Date with a Book (and a chance to win a book!)
Don’t judge a book by its cover!
1)Choose one of the wrapped books from the display based on just a few details.
2) Don’t unwrap the book until you get home.
3) Inside every wrapped book is a short “Rate Your Date” form. Fill it out and return it to the library for a chance to win a new book by a popular author!
4) Try another blind date with a book!

Happy Holidays from the library to you and your loved ones!
We have lots of holiday activities going on at the library this month!
December 11th at 1:00 we will be making Christmas cards to donate to Walker Nursing Home and the Virginia Bread of Love. Contact us if you’re interested in this event, so we can be sure to have enough supplies (and treats!).
December 19th at 10:00 is Lego Club!
All month long you can stop by the library and try to find the hidden candy canes. If you can find all the candy canes, you win a real candy cane of your own!
Also all month, we will be collecting non-perishable food for the Cass County Food Bank! For every can or box you bring in, we’ll erase $1.00 of your fines.
The library will be closed for the Friday following Thanksgiving ( Nov 27). We will reopen on Saturday morning and resume our usual hours.
What are you thankful for this year?
We have a turkey on our bulletin board who would be thankful if you would stop by and tell us what you’re thankful for so we can give him more feathers!
Stop by anytime on Friday, November 6th to make and fly a paper airlplane celebration of National Aviation History Month!
Stop by the Library any time on November 10 or November 11 and we’ll show you how to upcylcle an old mass market paperback into a bookish decoration fit to be your Thanksgiving centerpiece! The library will provide books, glue, and scissors, and a small selection of ribbons. Feel free to bring your own trims and twigs!
A big thank you to all the kids and parents who turned out on a cold Saturday morning to build awesome Lego creations at the Library!
Come see our beautiful display case full of their creations!
The weather is cooling off and it’s time to start thinking about cozy indoor activities. Here at the library, we’d like to start hosting more events for adults in our sunny reading area.
What are some activities you enjoy?
Board games (chess, Scrabble, etc)?
We’d like to host activities for men and women.
And there might even be free coffee!
