Library staffers have several programs for children this week.
Story Time begins at 10:30 a.m. Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday is also the date for the Children’s Book Club. Children from kindergarten to fifth grade are invited to enjoy reading, games and snacks from 5 to 6 p.m. The second meeting of Book Buddies is set for Thursday at 1 p.m. Attending any of the children’s programs is a wonderful way to introduce the fun of reading to kids.
Adult Book Club
The Adult Book Club will meet on Wednesday at 6:30 to discuss “The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold. Adults are invited to join in an hour of friendly discussion. Decaffeinated coffee will be served.
‘Suessical’ a success
Trick-or-treated was canceled in Syracuse this year. However, library staffers went ahead with Halloween festivities at the library. On the night of Halloween, more than 200 people received a “Suessical” treat. The elementary school and Facebook must have gotten the word out.

‘After School is Cool’
The next “After School is Cool” program is set for Nov. 19 at 3:30 pm. The craft activity will involve making “leaves” from tissue paper, and snacks will be provided. On Nov. 26, youngsters can learn how to make Thanksgiving place mats and play holiday word puzzles.
“After School is Cool” is designed for students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
Preschool Story Time sessions are set for Nov. 20 at 10:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Youngsters can listen to “Cooking with Henry and Ellie Belly” by Caroline Park Hurst and other stories about children cooking. Attendees will share their favorite recipes, prepare and make an apron to protect their clothing during future cooking projects. A cookbook with all the children’s favorite recipes will be available at the Thanksgiving Feast.
