The staff at East Morgan County Library would like to start offering regularly scheduled adult programs. As we start planning for this change we would like patron input regarding best day of the week, best time of day and program ideas. Please let us know of any programs or events you would like to see @ your library. There is a survey to complete, either on our website , by clicking the survey icon, or at the front desk of the library. We look forward to seeing your ideas.
Hello everyone. Here is a survey to complete.
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 is the first day of fall. With fall come many fun activities to do at the library and around the town of Brush, CO. This weekend is the Oktoberfest festivities. The library will be closed on Saturday, September 27th; however the Friends of the Library will be hosting a book sale Friday, September 26th and September 27th. The book sale on Friday is 10am-1pm for members only. Not a member? That is okay because you can become a member at the door. Then on Saturday, from 10am-2pm, the sale is open to the public. Come to the book cellar and check out the great selection. We look forward to seeing you there. Would you like more information on the Friends of the Library? You can check out their Facebook page at Friends Organization for the East Morgan County Library. We also have a survey on-line that you can fill out.
This week is also “Banned Books Week”. It is quite amazing which books have been banned from libraries and what they are/were banned for. Just a few titles are… 1984 by George Orwell, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Alice (series) by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Animal Farm by George Orwell and many other books. We have a list at the front desk if you are interested in seeing more titles. Just a side note, the Teen Advisory Group, known as TAG will be talking about some of these banned books on Wednesday, September 24th @ 3:30PM.
Story Time has also resumed and will be Wednesdays and Fridays at 10am. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is in full swing. If you want to sign up your child come in and we will help you get going. Kids Activity has been a lot of fun and will continue every Wednesday at 3:30 pm except the last Wednesday of the month, which is TAG Team.
Like I said, there are lots of things to do as fall starts, but the most fun I think I will do is “fall in love with a book.”
