Join us on Oct 17th at 6:00 for a special edition of Food Freaks. Louise Hanson will be giving her program, Tasting the Past: Exploring Kansas Food Memories. We will learn how food traditions from a number of cultures help maintain connections to the past. We will have our regular Food Freaks afterward. The theme is Food Memories.
We've got some old thrift store landscapes that need your help! Come paint Lovecraftian horrors, Jurassic predators, or comical invaders into these boring old paintings. Your creativity will flow and so will the laughs!
No more late fines?!?
That's not scary.
But hunger is!
Every can of food you donate between October 7-19 counts as a dollar of past late fines.
Come "meet" Abe Lincoln! All ages are welcome at this event.
If you miss President Lincoln at Atchison Public Library on September 10th, he will be at Leavenworth Public Library September 9th and Basehor Public Library on September 11th. Don't miss out on this great presentation!
The library will be closed Monday, September 2nd for Labor Day. We will be open regular hours tomorrow, Saturday, and back open at 9:00 AM Tuesday morning. Have a lovely weekend!
Storytime is back! Well, almost. Relax and enjoy your long Labor Day weekend and we'll kick off a new season of Storytime on Thursday, September 5th. Monday Storytime will start up on September 9th. Then it's every Monday and Thursday at 10:30 am from there. Hope to see you here!
Join us on Thursday, August 29th at 5:30 for a fun comedy about a group of women in a retirement home who decide to start a cheer squad. It stars Diane Keaton and Rhea Perlman. I can't tell you the title, but its what they shake.
This is an Adult Only Movie that is rated PG-13.
This summer we partnered with six other libraries in three counties to create a series of programs and discussions from the book One World: A Global Anthology of Short Stories. Our library led the way by hosting the first event. Dr. Julie Bowen set the bar high for the programs that followed! She led a lively discussion of two of the stories. The program is ending with a final gathering at the Cider Hill family Orchard on August 4th at 2pm. Participants in the program had their passports stamped and are now eligible for prize baskets! A special thanks to MGP Ingredients for donating the basket for Atchison.
If you missed out this year, don't worry! We have plans for another summer adventure in 2020!
Do you have questions about relatives, the house you live in, or the Atchison area? This Saturday the 20th is the perfect time to look for answers in our Kansas Room! Roxana, librarian and genealogist, will be available from 9-2.
