Special Events

Saturday, November 2 at 10 AM in the Hudson Room

Come dressed in your comfiest pajamas and bring along as many blankets, pillows, and stuffed animal friends as you can carry! We will be watching Toy Story 4.

We’re tagging along as Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and the rest of the Toy Story gang as they embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re two worlds away apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.

Snacks will be provided.

Library Club

October and November’s Library Club: Act of Kindness Project

Every Saturday in October from 10 AM – 12 PM in the Community Room

Every Friday in November until November 22 from 4 – 5 PM in the Community Room

Every year, the library participates in an act-of-kindness project. We’re excited to announce this year’s project!

This holiday season, we have set a goal to deliver holiday and greeting cards to residents of two local nursing homes. Spreading kindness is contagious! Make cards for two local nursing homes – the Masonic Homes of Kentucky Shelbyville Campus and Crestview – to boost resident’s happiness by decorating handmade cards. Who doesn’t love receiving a card just because?

We’re asking for your help. Between the two nursing homes, we are in need of more than 250 cards. We want each resident of the homes to get a card from someone in the community.

This project is open to all ages: children, young adults, and adults.

We’re looking forward to seeing what you create!

No registration is necessary.

Thursday, December 19 from 4 – 5 PM in the Hudson Room

It’s time to get in the holiday spirit and practice decorating cookies. Join us for an evening of stories and decorating delcious cookies.
