The Atchison Library will be closing at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, November 22, to get a jumpstart on the Thanksgiving holiday. We will also be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday (November 23 & 24). We will, however, reopen at 9:00 am Saturday, November 25, for our normal Saturday hours. So, if you're in need of a good book to keep you company over the holiday, or a movie to watch with the family, make sure you get down here before 5:00 tonight! And if we don't see you before then, we wish all our patrons a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
Are you crazy about food? Bring a family favorite tonight to share with 15-20 people and sample favorites from other families. Don't forget your plate and silverware!
Don't forget--Cafe Boheme is tonight--come drink some free cappuccino and listen to great local music. Are you musically talented? Come show us what you've got!
If you want a quick read that will make you laugh until tears fall, this is the book for you.
Stephen Colbert's Midnight Confessions is one of the funniest books I've read. It's irreverent. I like that. And as he states, you don't have to be Catholic to enjoy it.
If you have 30 minutes to kill, and need a laugh, this book is perfect. Enjoy.
Our library has a great resource for reading or listening to books on-line, be it on a computer, on your phone or with another device. Just go to sunflowerelibrary.overdrive.com/ , select Atchison Library and log in with your card number and PIN. If you would like for us to order a title you do not see on there, put in a patron request for it (be sure to specify that you would like the item in Overdrive and whether you want an ebook or an audiobook). Questions? Ask us at the circulation desk!
Join us on November 16th at 6:00 for a fun time with food and friends. The theme this month is Favorite Family Recipes. Bring enough for about 15 friends to sample and a table service. We'll share food and memories. See you there.
The Atchison Art Association will be creating a public art work at the library in 2018! A mosaic design of the community's choice will grace the south steps of the library. We hope that you will support the project by giving or voting for your favorite mosaic. To donate and/or vote please go to AtchisonArt.org
Starting this Monday, October 23 we will be watching an anime movie and, if there is interest, a video on how to draw Halloween chibi.
Are you crazy about chocolate? Come to the library tonight for Food Freaks. The theme is "Chocolate Madness" so bring something chocolaty to share.
Join us on October 19th at 6:00 for Chocolate Madness! Bring your food choice, enough for 0-15. Also bring the recipe to share and your own table service. Enjoy chocolate in many ways, and good company. See you there.
