Commentary from the Kilgore Library — Goblins and Elves

By Stephanie Rodenborg, Friends of the Library

As the -ber months are in, we experience the autumn leaves and the cool evenings. Our little, lovely goblins are having fun Wednesday mornings for Little Picassos programs and Friday mornings for Storytime, both at 10:30. We will be hosting the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party on Friday, October 20, at 10:30 a.m. Bring your costumes and the fun to the Kilgore Memorial Library. If you can’t make the actual party, please come check out the Discovery Center or our books. We have many books on pumpkins, leaves, Halloween, and everything autumn related. Lego Club has also returned on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.

Do not think there is nothing for us, bigger goblins. We have an adult leadership book club meeting October 20, at noon. They will be reading “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. The adults will continue this book for the November 17 meeting. We also have our own books to celebrate the -ber months.  Maybe pick up a cookbook to try a new soup recipe or read the classic “Frankenstein.”

The Ukraine:  War and Resistance display continues through December in the Kent Bedient Gallery for patrons of all ages.  This photo display from Fullbright Ukraine is a moving exhibit of what the citizens of this country are experiencing in war time to help us understand through photos and their captions.

Now, why are elves mentioned? For the Friends of the Kilgore Memorial Library is introducing a new fundraiser for the -ber months. We will be introducing Book Baskets starting October 21 on sale at the library. It will be great to get an early start on your holiday shopping; the store elves have been getting the Christmas decorations out. We will have baskets of all ages and interests. Get your elf shoes and hats on and come check out the book baskets for your holiday shopping.
