solar-viewing-glassesPartial Eclipse of the Sun! It’s on Thursday, October 23, beginning at 4:30pm, but it doesn’t reach its peak until around 5:30. Come to our library to borrow safe solar viewing glasses! It may be too cloudy, but we’re hoping the crescent sun will peep through. Come and give it a try, any time between 4:30 and sunset (around 6pm).

Jennifer Livingston from WKBT News Channel 8 will speak at the Galesville Public Library this Saturday, Oct. 25, at 10am. She will talk about bullying and compassion and her experience with The Compassion Project.  Parents, children, families, caregivers, and all interested community members are invited to this free program. You will be able to use our art supplies to decorate a compassion tile, which will be added to WKBT’s display.  The tiles will also be available for decorating through the end of October, while supplies last. No fee will be charged for the tiles, but donations to defray the costs of art supplies are welcome.

Got orange?  Wear it Oct. 22nd on “Unite Against Bullying” day!

terracycleSome of you may know that we have a Terracycle collection box here at the library, thanks to our patron, Elizabeth Lavender.  Unfortunately, we can no longer collect dairy containers, cheese packaging, or candy wrappers after October 20.  However, you still have time!  Bring them all in to the library foyer by Monday at 5pm to get them in before the deadline.  You will still be able to continue dropping off the other materials such as granola bar wrappers, salty snack bags, and more!  Stop by the library for a complete list.
