Good afternoon,

November will bring the first few holiday events at the library. Main Library's Holiday Open House will be the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Come see our decorations and make an ornament.

If you haven't had a chance to see them yet, Steven Riggs' paintings will be on display for the remainder of this month at Main Library, the Main Library Annex, and Northside Branch. Steven will also be joining us to teach a sketching class for adults this month.

As always, if you have suggestions for library events, I love to hear them. See you at the library!
