What’s Happening at Your Library – Oct/Nov 2011 ConnectNow

Library cardholders receive this publication in the mail every other month. Coming up in October/November, we have some signature events, including a visit by 2011 Librarian of the Year Nancy Pearl and popular young adult author Chris Crutcher. We’re also hosting a Teen Film Festival in October. Learn how to get your teen involved here.

Read a story about a woman and her resume makeover. Learn who she turned to for help. Also for adults with little kids, our Read with Me story (page 4) will give you some idea for developing reading skills in your little one. Our music writer takes you back to the ’70s with a book review – and soundtrack to go with it – for your enjoyment.

Just in time for fall, we provide extreme pumpkin ideas, including books you can check out that will help you set your jack-o-lanterns apart from the neighbors’. And a recipe for using those discarded seeds from our culinary arts librarian.

Until your copy arrives in the mail, feel free to flip through the pages here, pick up your copy at the library, or download a connectnowoctobernovember2011forweb.
