Activities at the Astor County Library

We have been very busy this past summer making room for and adding to our Hispanic materials collection with money received from a grant. The new collection, along with our previous Hispanic materials, are now located almost in the middle of the library next to the entrance to the Children’s Department. We now have new adult fiction, adult non-fiction, young adult fiction, juvenile fiction, and easy fiction. We will soon be receiving music CDs, DVDs, and magazines after they are processed.

Our Tuesday night crafts have kicked back into gear after the conclusion of the Summer Reading Program. In October we have Gel Candle Making, Card Crafts, and Wreath Making. We will be having Holiday Crafts in November and December. Please consult our online calendar for specific details about any of our events. Now is the time to start making presents for Christmas. We hope to see you here!

Let the games begin! Dance Dance Revolution, or DDR, was a big hit here this past year. The next “game” will be Guitar Hero and the young adult competition is on October 16th, which will include drinks, snacks, prizes, and lots of fun and excitement! On October 30th there will be a Halloween Party and Mask Making for all ages. Make sure to wear your costume so we can take your picture! We will give you some yummy treats if you promise not to play any tricks on us. There will also be a drawing for the winner of our Halloween Reading Prize. In order to enter the drawing just check out a book or magazine from now until October 30th. Good luck and happy haunting!

At least once per quarter we are designing a program with our Hispanic patrons in mind. Our first program, Cake Decorating, is Tuesday, November 18th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Jacqi McGuire will be giving the class and Edith Hendrickson will be translating for our Spanish speakers. The class will be limited to 12 people. You will have your own small cake to decorate and take home with you. If you are interested in attending please sign up in advance so we can save you a seat. If you have any suggestions for future programming please share your ideas with us!
