Dear Wonderful Patrons, Visit the library anytime this month to check out the indoor book sale. Explore a wide selection of books, including fiction, non-fiction, young adult fiction, and children’s books! Instead of fixed prices, you can donate an amount that feels right to you. Your generous contributions directly support our library’s initiatives, programs, and services, fostering literacy and lifelong learning in our community. Join me for Story Time on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-11am. Listen to a story, sing some songs, enjoy some felt board fun, and participate in a craft. Stuffies usually make an appearance! Try a challenge or free build during Lego Club on Sunday afternoons. All ages are welcome. Lego Club is from 1-3pm but you may arrive and leave at your leisure within this time frame. Feel free to join one or more Lego Clubs as your schedule allows. If you have thought about writing your memoir, join Lorraine Lindstedt at the monthly memoir writing workshop via Zoom from 6:30-8:30pm on the second Wednesday of each month. The workshop this month is on Wednesday, October 11. Continue reading to hear the latest news and events from the West Buxton Public Library. Thank you for your support and I hope to see you soon at the library. Sincerely, Caroline Nickerson Library Director
