Artful Adults - fall vase decorations


Just in time for family get-togethers, this month for Artful Adults we're making fall-themed decorations for vases. Join us at 6:30 pm Wednesday, November 9 for a hands-on workshop. As always we'll have the supplies, you simply bring your enthusiasm and a sense of fun.

Artful Adults is a monthly workshop (second Wednesday) for adults who are interested in arts, crafts, and living a fanciful life full of creativity. 

Advance registration required by Tuesday, August 9 to ensure ample supplies: phone 592-4130 to sign up.

Book discussion: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

The Ocean at the End of the Lane book cover

This month we're hosting a pair of discussion on the highly acclaimed novel The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.

Join us for a pair of conversations on Monday, November 14:

  • 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.

As delicate as a butterfly’s wing and as menacing as a knife in the dark, The Ocean at the End of the Lane is told with a rare understanding of all that makes us human. 

A middle-aged man returns for a funeral. Although the house he lived in is long gone, he is drawn to the farm at the end of the road, where, when he was seven, he encountered a most remarkable girl. He hasn’t thought of Lettie in decades, and yet as he sits by the pond behind the ramshackle farmhouse where she once lived, the unremembered past comes flooding back. And it is a past too strange, too frightening, too dangerous to actually have happened.

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

Give your input

The Lodi Public Library's Board of Trustees is reviewing the strategic plan and invites your participation using this online form.

The board very much would like to hear your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, and views about the future of our community’s library. We value your input, and thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

Early literacy classes

With the big kids back in school, there's time for the little kids to learn, too!

Our children's librarian organizes a fantastic series of early literacy offerings for the youngest library patrons. Learning starts at birth, and literacy starts way before children are ready to read.

  • Shake, Rattle & Roll Baby! - baby music classes, 9:30 am Wednesdays
  • Family Storytime - preschool story lessons for kids walking and talking but not yet in school, held 10 am Wednesdays
  • Tinker Tots - early STEM skills for 4-5 year old thinkers, Fridays
  • First Art - exploring messy creativity, Fridays

Check the library calendar for upcoming dates. More information here, too

After school club is back!

Now that the kids are back in school, Miss Kristine also has brought back Tuesday afternoon's After School Club.

Kids can stop into the library after school for a quick, fun project. You never know what our librarians will have for you: It might be art, science, reading, technology, whole body movement, engineering, math, or something else entirely. Programs last up to one hour.
