Children’s programs

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.
