Get your calendars and red pens out!! We have some exciting events coming up in the next couple of weeks! FIRST - October 16 - SCRATCH CUPCAKES will be in town from 3 - 6 parked in front of Matchstick marvels. They will be bringing: Wedding Day, Oh Happy Day!, White Chocolate Cheesecake, Snickerdoodle, Champagne, PB&J, Oatmeal Raisin, Hot Fudge Sundae, Chocolate Chip Chocolate. Caramel Apple, Peanut Butter Brownie, Chocolate Covered Waffle. This year, instead of bringing gluten free cupcakes, they will be bringing gluten-free dessert slices! While this is technically not a Library function, we want to support the effort to keep SCRATCH coming to our community! After all, who doesn’t love a great cupcake!! Note, too, that our TAB (Teen Advisory Board) will be set up with their Lemonade Stand available for a free-will donation. These young people are working hard toward enhancing the Young Adult section with new books! Our other BIG event, on October 18 from 6 - 8 is the FALL FESTIVAL!! This is great time to visit your local library to see what’s new. We will be having a free well donation Potato Bar with oodles of different toppings. Also, there will be 9 or 10 themed baskets featured on a SILENT AUCTION. These baskets will be available for viewing from now until the 18th. Many of the contents of the baskets have been donated by community members. We want to thank them for their generous support! In addition to enjoying a festive evening, you will be helping the library toward a goal of some badly needed updates. We have a large back-room that, with some plumbing, could provide a small kitchen area that we could utilize for cooking classes and day to day housekeeping duties. Currently, our only water source is in the public restroom, Many of our crafts and special events require some water and washing of dishes or supplies. We are hoping to add a full sized refrigerator, range/oven and a counter including a sink.
