At the Library for October 23rd, 2018

Updated 2018/10/22

 

 

Kevin Kwan’s humour and satirical trilogy is new this week, which began with ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ and ends with ‘Rich People Problems.’

 

J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Story of Kullervo’ tells the story of a doomed young man who is sold into slavery and who swears revenge on the magician who killed his father.

 

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Fall.  Baby Laptime is every Thursday at 11 am.
