Director's Corner Fall is here, soon it will be Pumpkin Spice season! No worries though, the library is only offering a slew of new programs, none of which will involve spices. We are starting a monthly drop-in craft, a Saturday storytime on the 3rd Saturday of the month, along with various family and adult programs. Check out our newsletter and calendars for all the details. Also, the Friends of the Library are getting ready for some fall fundraisers. Let us know if you are interested in helping!

I love listening to audiobooks. As a busy working mom, I like being able to multitask while enjoying a good book. I recently listened to Sea Glass Cottage by Irene Hannon. This book is set in the small Oregon coastal town of Hope Harbor. The main characters, Christi and Jack, both have to face their pasts and their assumptions in order to move forward with life. Sea Glass Cottage is available to our patrons in audiobook format only through our app SimplyE, which has a wide range of titles in ebook and audiobook form. SimplyE works on Android and Apple devices. - from Joy
