November is here and you know what that means. It is The Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood Sweater Drive and Food for Fines month!
Nov. 1 through Nov. 30, please drop off gently used or new sweaters, coats, hats, gloves — anything to keep someone warm this winter, at any branch library. Food for fines — bring any non-perishable food item to any branch library for a $1 reduction per item in existing overdue fines.
Food accepted for fines on returned library materials only, not for replacement fees of lost or damaged items. Sorry we cannot accept out of date items. All items collected in November will help out each library community in the county.
The De Queen Library will kick off the Sweater Drive with a Storytime with Clifford the Big Red Dog on Nov. 6, at 4 p.m. Come on out, bring a sweater and meet Clifford. Our Thanksgiving Story will be Nov. 20, at 4 p.m.
Don’t forget those Domino games going on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. for any of you folks that would like to come in and join in the fun. You can contact us by calling 870-584-4364 or visiting our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/seviercountylibrary
Amy at Horatio Library says, Gobble, Gobble, Gobble. We hope you are enjoying this cooler weather. We will only have one children’s program in November. On Nov. 9, Horatio will be having the Harvest Festival. There will be a street dance, car show, art show, vendors and lots of activities.
We will have table’s set up outside the library with lots of fun activities for kids. At 9 a.m. we will have a coloring contest for ages 3 to 5 and ages 5 to 7. They will be judged at 9:45 a.m. with a prize given to the winners.
The Library Scarecrow will be here and who knows the exciting things the scarecrow has up their sleeve. At 10 a.m. we will have a storytime on “How to Catch a Turkey” by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton.
At 10:30 we’ll do a craft for the first 45 children. We will be doing the Turkey Hokey Pokey and a Turkey Dance. Bring your kids and enjoy the fun.
Don’t forget about our Domino game on Thursday
