November is National Novel Writing Month, and that's not just something for adults! Lots of teens write a novel during this time as well. In fact, there is a whole website dedicated to helping you accomplish this goal- check it out: http://ywp.nanowrimo.org/
In celebration of the season, the Children’s Room of the Cumberland Public Library invites children, ages birth to 10 with their parents, to join the fun on Saturday, Octoboo 31 at 2:00 pm. Join us as we sing songs about bats, pumpkins, trick-or-treating, and the fall season with Sarah Gardner. The children will know the tunes, with words adapted to the Halloween theme. Costumes encouraged!
Tickets are available for a nominal fee of 50¢.
Fall into a Great Book
As the days get colder and shorter, and Halloween gets closer, you may find yourself with the urge to read a scary story! Why is it that we find horror novels so terrifying, but so fun to read? Could it be that we like exploring dark ideas from the warmth and safety of our own homes? Maybe your life is crazy right now, and reading about someone who is having a worse time than you brings some measure of comfort.
Everyone knows the library carries great books, dvds, video games, and music. People also know it is a great place to meet friends and an awesome place to get away to get some work done. But, do you know that your library also hosts events that are entertaining, informative, and just plain old fun?!
September is here and school is beginning again. For some this is exciting, for others this is just about the worst news ever. If you feel like you want to hide under the covers until next summer rolls around, why not escape into the world of fantasy? Here are a few picks from our teen book club that are guaranteed to make you forget all about that math assignment!
