Post a comment below and let us know!
Visit the library for some spooky, clever ideas to spice up your Halloween celebrations.
How about borrowing a CD to create the perfect, creepy atmosphere for your party or to greet your trick-or-treaters as they approach your door? I used this CD at a party at our house recently and the kids loved it (me too)!
We have lots of new Halloween stories for little ones, as well as old favorites. Remember this one?
Of course there are spooky reads for the slightly bigger ones.
And the even bigger ones, too.
Have a safe and happy Halloween!

You don’t have to be a knitter!
Anyone is welcome to attend and to bring whatever they are working on: knitting, crocheting, sewing, needlework, whatever keeps your hands busy!
Groups will meet 1st and 3rd Monday afternoons or 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of each month. Sign ups have begun at the library desk.

This weekend my family, kids' bikes and puppy in tow, enjoyed a nice, long walk by the Erie Canal. It made me think - everyone should do this! It's fun. It's healthy. It's family time well spent and it fits everyone's budget (F-R-E-E) . Free... like a lot of things in the library!
We have a new book for you in the library about just this kind of outting:
Cycling the Erie Canal - 400 miles of history and adventure along the Erie Canalway Trail is an indispensable resource for dedicated cyclists planning to bike across the state or the casual rider looking to take the family out for a couple of
hours. Great for walkers, hikers, in-line skaters, boaters
and auto travelers, too.

This is very last minute, but the high school librarian stumbled upon this and we thought we'd jump in. Better late than never!
It's like a book battle, but run virtually. Each library is hosting its own party and the tournament will be run in a password protected chat room that one of the programmers has created on Meebo.
I am still nailing down specific details, but I know that the online, virtual book battle with other public libraries will be held from 6:30 - 7:30 PM. Come early - we'll have pizza!
If you are interested, call or email Tracy. Run! Don't walk.

I love this quote from the Pioneer Library System's executive director, Jennifer Morris:
"A library card is the one card in your wallet that actually saves you money.”
