My! My! Time Flies!
October 28, 2010
October proved to be a busy month here at the Red Bridge Branch – with programs, events and what we affectionately call "organized chaos" throughout.
In what just might have been one of the last beautiful weekends of 2010, (October 9th) the Red Bridge Shopping Center (home of the Red Bridge Library) hosted a small Festival that included food, fun, and information about the various services and businesses that are all a part of this community. Needless to say, the library was right in the thick of it. The library hosted a table with information about our programs and the services we can provide to the public at large, including promoting the new webpage, the Midwest Genealogy Center, and storytimes. The publicized puppet show turned into a presentation on our colony of Invisible Turtles (see blog entry of September 28 for more information on these creatures), and we also had storytime with Sara in the afternoon. On the same day of the Festival, the library also hosted one of the highly popular Mad Science Presents programs.
Our Internet 101 classes are back on schedule on Monday afternoons at 2 p.m. – topics range from setting up an email account, to using the MCPL catalog.
There’s still time to register for our Halloween Party this Saturday! (October 30) at 2 p.m. – we’d love to see you here!
The Red Bridge Branch would ask you to please pardon our dust, as we are having new lighting fixtures installed. The section undergoing the work will be corded off at that time, but don’t worry, the library will remain open. The lighting overhaul is expected to be finished by November 2nd. In the parts that are already completed, you will notice a huge difference!
We look forward to seeing you in November. Some of our other programs are Revolutionary War with Beth Foulk (November 3), Let’s Make Something Sweet (November 8), Native American Crafts and Games (November 15), and Paper Quilt Blocks (November 20). We’ll also be checking the accuracy of the Old Farmer’s Almanac Weather predictions.
