Break out the Pink...It’s party time at the Blue Springs North branch. October 16th will be our 2nd annual Pink Party in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Pink Party will kick off at 2 p.m., and will feature a variety of fun learning experiences. We will have informational material from the Susan G. Komen Organization, Cancer Action, St. Mary’s Mammography Department, and Centerpoint Medical Center's Bone Density testing.
October is the time for one of America's 'ultimate' classics. You sports fans know what I mean. It's the fall classic, or better known as the "World Series"! In case you somehow missed it, Ken Burns added a new segment to his outstanding documentary on Baseball. It's called the 10th Inning, and ran on channel 19 recently.
October is Right-Brainers Rule Month. Officially registered by Lee Silber with Chase's Calendar of Events, it is a month long celebration to focus on those of us who are creative and innovative, and manage to survive in a left-brained world.

Technoman Talks: How I Began My Own Small, Successful Business
It all began with a dream I had. Really, at first it seemed a nightmare.

In our MCPL Library system, it is our branch managers that go to a book meeting each month to purchase the books for their branches. I was able to go one month, see this process, and help purchase books for our branch collection. I purchased a book called Dump him, Marry the Horse. I am a big horse lover, so I could not see this book without getting a copy for our branch.

Whale Talk and Chris Crutcher--Challenged Too Often
Chris Crutcher is probably one of the most challenged contemporary authors in the United States right now. He is also one of the most real, most caring, and most intelligent people I’ve ever met. I have been lucky to chat with him on several different occasions.
