We have lots of information for you this month about the Family Fun Day and more information about our adult programs. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at the library.
We want to invite all community members to a Family Fun Day on Saturday Oct. 13, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. as a way to thank you for your support this past year. This will take the place of our previously postponed Friends of the Library carnival. We are planning to have bounce houses, games, pumpkin decorating, bingo, a book sale and a chance to get some funny family pictures. We will be serving hot dogs, chips and bottled water. Everything is provided for you, but free-will donations are welcome.
We would like to extend our thanks to City State Bank for providing the food and the Norwalk Lions Club for hosting the bingo as well as providing volunteers to serve food. We also extend our thanks to our Friends of the Library and the Norwalk Teens willing to volunteer their time to make the event run smoothly.
Norwalk Library is excited continue our “Breakfast and Books” program this year on the third Friday of each month at 9 a.m. It will take place before the library is open, but feel free to join us anyway. (We will have the doors opened especially for you). This program is designed as a chance for community members to discuss what they have been reading, hear about new authors that they might enjoy and simply to socialize. We are a casual group, and even if you haven’t had a chance to read anything please feel free to attend to simply learn about new books that might interest you. We also serve some type of muffins, doughnuts or fruit along with juice and coffee for all attendees. No registration is required.
Novel Year Book Club
We will continue our Novel Year Book club in the months of October and December. Our October read is “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.” We will meet Oct. 2 to discuss the book, Oct. 9 to watch the newest Sherlock Holmes movie and Oct. 16 to participate in a murder mystery dinner party. (Only Oct. 19 requires registration before Sept. 26.) Our December read is “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Discussion will be Dec. 11, and we will watch the movie on Dec. 18. Please feel free to join us as we finish up another great Novel Year. We will have more information about next year’s award winning Novel Year in the coming months.
As you can tell, there is a lot going on at your local library these days, with more to come including technology classes and more Learn@YourLibrary programing on the second Saturday of each month. Please stop in sometime to pick up the children and teens programming brochure to find out what we have for them. We are looking forward to seeing lots of you at these events and many others in the future. Please watch our Facebook page and our website for updates.Norwalk Easter Library
