(October 15, 2012) It's time to get to work on that special Halloween costume. About.com has all sorts of suggestions for costumes for all ages, as does Family Fun, and Martha Stewart. If you're feeling really ambitious check out the costume and decorating ideas at Instructables. And for frights of a different kind, check out Sunday's world record free-fall, from 128,000 feet and over 800 mph; then see news-reel of the previous record jump, from 1960!
(October 15, 2012) The Minerva Public Library fall book sale runs all this week. There are many books for sale for ages and interests, as well as audiobooks, DVDs, VHS tapes, CDs, and this fall, a collection of vintage 78's and LP's. New items are added to the sale every day, so plan to visit more than once. On Saturday, October 20, the final day of the sale, you may buy a grocery bag full of the remaining items for only $1.00. All proceeds from the sale are used to purchase new materials this year for you to check out and enjoy.
(October 4, 2012) A reminder that the library will be closed Monday, October 8 as a day of unpaid leave for all library staff. This is the third mandatory furlough day this year imposed by the library Administration and Trustees as a cost-saving measure. No library materials are due on any day that the library is closed.
