book discussion: The Hobbit

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

The next book for discussion will be The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, October 23:

  • at NOON where you're invited to bring along a sack lunch for a daytime conversation,
  • and again at 7 pm for those who prefer an after-work or post-dinner evening conversation.

A great modern classic, prelude to The Lord of the Rings - Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure.

All are welcome to join the conversation: kids, teens, adults, fanatics or newbies!

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!

Gift wrapping for homemade treats

For Artful Adults this month we'll do make some samples for food gift packaging, starting at 6:30 pm Wednesday, November 8 in the library program room. Get ready for all the upcoming holidays with a bunch of great ideas on wrapping up your homemade treats for gift giving. We'll provide supplies and inspiration, you bring the enthusiasm - we'll send you home with a sample of each idea, so you can reproduce them at home later.

Artful Adults Workshops is a free monthly class series (the second Wednesday at 6:30 pm) for adults who are interested in arts, crafts, and living a fanciful life full of creativity. Teens may participate if they are accompanied by an adult. Pre-registration will be required to ensure sufficient supplies.

Please pre-register for this workshop at the library by Tuesday, November 7. Phone 592-4130 or stop in to sign up!
