No Shelf Required: Your Public Library

Fall is well underway! We have been enjoying a busy time at our library as the school year begins. We have a full slate of programs over the course of the next month; I hope that you will consider dropping in to check one of them out.

Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration: We’re celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a festival on the plaza in front of the library! On Saturday, Oct. 5, the fun goes on from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Drop by for a fun bilingual storytime at 10:05 a.m. in the library, and then check out all the music, food and activities happening on the plaza that day.

Are you interested in climate change? On Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 6:30 p.m., a local expert will share information about climate change and host a Q&A session afterwards.

Library programs don’t always happen at the library! On Saturday, Oct. 19, from 3 to 5 p.m., we’re having a tea-tasting and farm tour program at Blue Dreams USA. Take in the view and the fall colors while you enjoy a free organic tea tasting, check out their unique farm boutique and learn about Blue Dreams USA signature products: lavender, roses and tea. The location
is 11700 Old Annapolis Road, Frederick.

For teens this month, we have a wide array of programs that might suit your tastes. Teen programs are geared for teens from 6th through 12th grade.
