Some exciting upcoming programs

So do you ever find yourself bored and needing something to do, well there is always the library because in the month of October we have some fun programs that you should think about attending here@ APL.

To celebrate this year’s Teen Read Week theme which is LOL @ your library, we are showing the very funny movie She’s the Man starring Amanda Bynes on Tuesday, October 16th from 6-8:30 p.m.

On October 23rd, the monthly TAB meeting meets at 3:30 in the Carnegie Room. Remember this is your chance to help us decide what we can do for you!

Our last program in October is the DDR Tournament which is on Friday, October 26th from 1-5 in the afternoon, so come and test out your mad DDR skills. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for making prizes possible!

Read ‘n’ Feed with the author Carolyn Meyer

Well, last night’s 2007 Read ‘n’ Feed was a great success and those who attended (thanks to all of you) had a wonderful time and I hope to see you at the next and for those who didn’t come, well hope to see you at the next one as well.

Carolyn Meyer was a riot and really had a good time, as she talked mostly about her book: Mary, Bloody Mary but also about her two upcoming books as well. And I promise as soon as they are available APL will be buying them. I can’t wait to read the next one which is about Mozart!

Ms. Meyer also complimented all of the Anderson teens that attended saying that we were a very good audience and that she was impressed! Thanks again for showing our visiting author what a wonderful place Anderson is!
