Hey y’all its Fall! It is starting to look like Fall at the De Queen Library. All those familiar smells will be coming out and Halloween is just around the corner. Banned Book Week has come and gone and we caught a few people celebrating their Freedom to Read and checked out a banned book or two.

Horatio Library has some spooktacular things going on in the month of October. We will have two story times, October 6 and October 20 at 11 a.m. They are going to be so ghoulish you won’t want to miss them. October 6 we will also be having a huge book sale in conjunction with the Horatio Community Wide Garage Sale. We will have books set outside and some inside. We will be selling paperback books 12 for $1.00 and hardcover books for .75 cents. We have our TV set up so come in, have a cup of coffee and watch the news, listen to music or watch a movie. Don’t forget we have Dominoes every Thursday morning and Bridge on Thursday afternoon. Stop by and see Ms. Amy if you’re not too scared! Happy Fall y’all from Horatio Library.


This October at the Lockesburg Library we will have our book club discussion of “A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy” by Sue Klebold” on Saturday, Oct. 13 at 10 a.m. Klebold’s son, Dylan, was one of the Columbine High School shooters in 1999. Next month’s read will be available to pass out at this meeting. Join our book club and share with us your opinions on this great read. The library and Ms. Wendy appreciates the younger readers and strives to be kid-friendly. Children’s programs are planned throughout October on Thursdays at 1 p.m. Some of this month’s programs will be about “Click, Clack Moo, Cows That Type” and “The Sun”, our passport series: “All about Egypt” and our Halloween program, “Room on the Broom”.

The Gillham Library highly recommends the book “Relics - Myth You Don’t Believe (Bigfoot)” by John Vandeventer.  The action begins in Mena, Arkansas and is a very fast-paced, well written mystery.  We will have a children’s program the last Saturday in October. You can call Susie at 870-386-5665 or visit their Facebook page: for more information.
