It feels great to be back in the swing of things! This week the Traci brought the Upper Michigan Art Garage to our library. We had a fantastic turnout ranging in age from PreK to 6th grade and I think it is safe to say every kid made amazing Halloween projects using recycled and upcycled products. We can't wait for next week when "Spooky Box" author Mark Gonyea visits us.
Annual Candy Halloween Drop - We know you love Halloween in Pittsfield. Please help us make it a little bit more fun for EVERYONE. We’re organizing our third annual candy drop.

Look for more great programs in November and December including:

And remember, we are an ALL volunteer library. We have NO paid staff. We spend the money we raise on books and programs for our community and we can't do it without your help.
