It’s October! Does anything special come to mind when thinking of October at the Dalton Community Library? Oh yes, it’s time for our Fall Book and Bake Sale.
The sale will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 17.
There have been large amounts of donations for this sale and we have a vast selection of books, magazines, DVDs and more. We have books about various U.S. presidents and a lot about American wars, both historic and more current. These books are in great shape. There are also many books about gardening and plants. If any of these things are your specialty, be sure to stop in.
The prices are very reasonable, with most adult hardcovers $1, adult paperbacks 50¢, children’s hardcover 50¢ and children’s paperbacks 25¢.
There are many new and barely used books, great for Christmas gifts or donations to schools. Come browse our inventory and grab a homemade baked good while you’re here. The smell of cookies, breads and warm fall treats will fill the air.
Our Tuesday Story Time is going strong, with lots of stories, activities and smiles. The kids are full of energy and have a good time interacting and learning. All children not yet in elementary school can join the fun at 11 a.m. Tuesday mornings. October will be an exciting month for crafts during Story Time, since Halloween is almost here.
For our October Kid’s Crew meetings, we will continue building with K’nex. The children have shown a strong interest in working with K’nex and have worked well together. We’ve watched educational videos, shared ideas and had a previous K’nex competitor share her experience of the competition she’s attended in Lackawanna County. This group is still growing, and new children are welcome.
Our other usual groups and meetings this month as planned. For an up to date schedule of events at the Dalton Community Library, check our website, lclshome/b/dalton. Contact JFamiletti@albright.org for any program questions or call us at 570-563-2014
