Until Further NoticeWe know it's strange times, and with our new item quarantine procedures, we want to make sure nobody is penalized for factors out of their control. Until further notice, or until returned items no longer need to be quarantined and the circulation process can get back to normal, we will continue to NOT charge fines. Please be aware, however, that lost fees, lost processing fees, and damaged fees still apply. Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding!
Second Week of the MonthThe cookbooks continue for all you aspiring chefs! To celebrate Guacamole Day in September, there will be Mexican inspired recipes. Polish inspired recipes will be served up in October in honor of Pierogi Day, and November will be all about cakes, to help celebrate Cake Day. All cookbooks will be available starting the second week of each month. Stop in to pick yours up and get cooking!
Fall-ing for Story Time with Ms. Lorry
October 5 - October 22Story time will be back soon. The tentative start date for story time
will be Tuesday, October 5th and will continue through the
week of October 18th, weather permitting.
The Imlay City story time will occur on Fridays at 11:00 AM at the Old
School Park, and the Attica Branch story time will take place on
Tuesdays at 11:00 AM at the grass area just outside the library.
Our story time adventures will take place outside while the weather
cooperates, at parks within walking distance of the libraries, so
everyone can still stop in to check books out. Once it becomes too
cold for outdoor meetings, we’ll plan to meet virtually every Tuesday
at 10:30 AM.
Please note that there will be no regular story time sessions the
weeks of September 27, October 25, November 22, and November 29.
Mini Canvas Art Show
Pick Up October 13thWith all the take home crafts we've been giving you for over a year, we realized that we never got to see your finished products! So this little art show is your chance to show us your talent! We'll give you a mini canvas to take home, but no supplies this time-use up leftovers from old craft kits or from your personal stash, and get creative! Then, once your canvas is finished, bring it back for us to display (on loan) in our glass display case. Be sure to check out the staff's contributions too! Pick up your mini canvas starting October 13th, and return it to us by October 20th. We can't wait to see your masterpieces!
November 15th Pick UpDecember is right around the corner, and we can hear somebody's bells in the distance, so let's get started making those lists! To do that, you'll first need an energizing cup of joe or tea. So in November we'll be making stenciled red or green mugs similar to the ones we did in March. It may make the list-writing a little more enjoyable! Pick up starts November 15th.
