Storybook Time – for age three and up

Mondays at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

At Storybook Time, we sing a few songs, read one or two picture books and make a craft. We will read the same books at 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Here is what we have planned for this month:

  • October 7 – Maurice wants the last chocolate cookie, but his mother insists that he offer it to everyone else first before he eats it. He goes above and beyond, WAY beyond, to meet her demand. We’ll see just how far he goes when we read The Last Chocolate Cookie by Jamie Rix.
  • October 14 – No Storybook Time today, because we’ll be closed in observance of Columbus Day.

 

  • October 21 – The Farm-City Festival is coming up this week. We’ll prepare ourselves for the collision of farm and city by reading Mrs. Wishy-Washy’s Farm by Joy Cowley and Elizabeth Fuller. Duck, Cow and Pig are tired of being washed, so they escape the farm for the big city. Surely, nothing will go wrong.
  • October 28 – “Halloween is just hours away!” Actually, it is a few days away, but it is only a few hours away in today’s book, Big Pumpkin by Erica Silverman. That means that the star of our story, the witch, is in a bit of a time crunch. She needs to get a ginormous pumpkin off its vine, but it just won’t budge. Will she ever be able to make pumpkin pie?

Book Maniacs – for children in fourth grade and up –On Wednesday, October 9 at 4:15 p.m., the Maniacs will discuss The Seer of Shadows by Avi.

Publisher’s Summary – Horace Carpetine does not believe in ghosts. Raised to believe in science and reason, Horace Carpetine passes off spirits as superstition. Then he becomes an apprentice photographer and discovers an eerie–and even dangerous–supernatural power in his very own photographs. When a wealthy lady orders a portrait to place by her daughter’s gravesite, Horace’s employer, Enoch Middleditch, schemes to sell her more pictures–by convincing her that her daughter’s ghost has appeared in the ones he’s already taken. It’s Horace’s job to create images of the girl. Yet Horace somehow captures the girl’s spirit along with her likeness. And when the spirit escapes the photographs, Horace discovers he’s released a ghost bent on a deadly revenge.

 

Bookies – The Pike Road Bookies meet on the third Thursday of each month, except December. –On Thursday, October 17 at 11:15 a.m., they will discuss Women in Sunlight by Frances Mayes.

Publisher’s Summary – Kit Raine, an American writer living in Tuscany, is working on a biography of her close friend, a complex woman who continues to cast a shadow on Kit’s own life. Her work is waylaid by the arrival of three women–Julia, Camille, and Susan–all of whom have launched a recent and spontaneous friendship that will uproot them completely and redirect their lives. Susan, the most adventurous of the three, has enticed them to subvert expectations of staid retirement by taking a lease on a big, beautiful house in Tuscany. Though novices in a foreign culture, their renewed sense of adventure imbues each of them with a bright sense of bravery, a gusto for life, and a fierce determination to thrive. But how? With Kit’s friendship and guidance, the three friends launch themselves into Italian life, pursuing passions long-forgotten–and with drastic and unforeseeable results.

Famous for introducing the character of the vampire Count Dracula, the novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so he may find new blood and spread undead curse, and the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel and invasion literature. The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism.

Adult Programming:

 

The Ladies of High Tea meets the Fourth Thursday of the month at 3PM.  In October the Ladies will read Death in the Stacks: A Library Lovers Mystery by Jenn McKinlay.  Join us at 3PM on Thursday, October 24, 2019.

Summary:  Lindsey Norris and her staff are gearing up for the Briar Creek Library’s annual Dinner in the Stacks fund-raiser. The night of dinner and dancing is not only a booklover’s dream—it’s the library’s biggest moneymaker of the year. But instead of raising funds, the new library board president is busy raising a stink and making the staff miserable. Although Olive Boyle acts like a storybook villain, Lindsey is determined to work with her and make the event a success. But when Olive publicly threatens the library’s newest hire, Paula, Lindsey cracks like an old book spine and throws Olive out of the library.

The night of the fund-raiser, Lindsey dreads another altercation with Olive—but instead finds Paula crouched over Olive’s dead body. Paula may have secrets, but Lindsey and the rest of the crafternooners know she’s not the one who took Olive out of circulation. As the plot thickens, Lindsey must catch the real killer before the book closes on Paula’s future….

In November 2019 the Ladies will read The Giving Quilt: An Elm Creek Novel by Jennifer Chiaverini.  Join us at 3PM on Thursday, November 21, 2019.  Please note that due to the Thanksgiving Holiday falling on the fourth Thursday we will be meeting a week earlier.

Summary: At Elm Creek Manor, the week after Thanksgiving is “Quiltsgiving,” a time to commence a season of generosity. From near and far, quilters and aspiring quilters—a librarian, a teacher, a college student, and a quilt-shop clerk among them—gather for a special winter session of quilt camp, to make quilts for Project Linus. (In real life, Chiaverini has long been active in this charitable organization, dedicated to providing handmade quilts and blankets to children in need.)   Each quilter, ever mindful that many of her neighbors, friends, and family members are struggling through difficult times, uses her creative gifts to alleviate their collective burden. As the week unfolds, the quilters respond to Sylvia’s provocative question in ways as varied as the life experiences that drew them to Elm Creek Manor. Love and comfort are sewn into the warm, bright, beautiful quilts they stitch, and their stories collectively consider the strength of human connection and its rich rewards.  Featuring not only well-loved characters but also intriguing newcomers, The Giving Quilt will remind us all: Giving from the heart blesses the giver as much as the recipient, and while giving may not always be easy, it is always worthwhile.
