The staff is gearing up here for Trick or Treat on the Square. We have costumes and decorating material all over the library. Our theme is Star Wars, so look for some of your favorite Star Wars characters when you visit the library.
We will recreate scenes from Star Wars throughout the library. We’ll have a magician as well. There will be lot of booths out front with candy and other items for trick or treaters. Join us on Saturday, October 26, from 5 to 7 p.m. It’s not too late to sign up for a booth. If your club, organization, or church would like to have a booth, call the library at (706) 657-7857 to get information on this.
We have more new books for you. These are books for adults. I’ll try to have a list for youth and children later. Look for Right Beside You by Mary Monroe; Miss Julia Takes the Wheel by Ann B. Ross; The Tinderbox by Beverly Lewis; Paranoid by Lisa Jackson; Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson; The Yankee Widow by Linda Lael Miller; Spirit of the Season by Fern Micheals; The Five by Hallie Rubenhold; Nothing Ventured by Jeffrey Archer; and Whickers in the Dark by Rita Mae Brown. Come check one out.
October is the month for our Membership Drive for the Friends of the Library. A single membership is $10, a family membership is $15, and a lifetime membership is $100. All funds will go to support programs at the library. We help fund Summer Reading for children, we buy books for the library collection, and along with the Dade County Historical Society, we buy materials and books for the Local History Room.
We would love to have more volunteers, but if all you can do is pay for a membership, that will help your local library. You may drop off you membership fee at the library and fill out a membership form, or mail it to Friends of the Dade County Library, P.O. Box 340, Trenton, GA 30752. Be sure and give us your email address so we can
keep you up to date on our activities.
