October Newsletter

May contain: clothing, hat, purple, book, comics, and publication

Hello October.


Directors Corner


Football and falling leaves are upon us!  I get so excited about fall.  I have always enjoyed what Michigan has to offer in the autumn:  apple picking, cider and donuts for sure, leaf piles in yards, pumpkins on front porches and of course making an apple pie.  I hope you can get out and enjoy what makes you happy. 


The library has kicked off a “Guess the Weight of the Pumpkin” again this year.  Please stop by the library and take a minute to put your guess into the basket.  It is being given away on Friday, October 13th.  Good luck.


All of our programs are going strong. Call if you have questions about what we have to offer.  We would really like to see you each week.


A BIG Thank You to the Country Mill, Friends of the PBTDL and the patrons that donated items for the craft show.  It was a really great weekend.


Take care and have a fantastic October.

Wishing you a safe and happy Halloween.

The Happy Bookers: BookAholics Book Club

The book club has chosen "American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins and will be meeting on Wednesday, October 11th at 3:00 pm.

Lydia lives in Acapulco. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while cracks are beginning to show in Acapulco because of the cartels, Lydia’s life is, by and large, fairly comfortable. But after her husband’s tell-all profile of the newest drug lord is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.
Forced to flee, Lydia and Luca find themselves joining the countless people trying to reach the United States. Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?
