If you are interested in learning how to scrapbook, please e-mail Mary Ayers at We are trying to see if a class in January or February would be well attended. If you are interested in learning how to scrapbook or just curious for some new ideas, please let us know. We would like to know your name and e-mail address, and the best times for you to come to the library so we can accomodate as many people as possible.

Teens are invited to join us for a Twilight program at the Newark Library. We will have a trivia challenge based on the first three books, a scavenger hunt, a book discussion on Breaking Dawn (make sure you’ve read the book recently so the discussion will move smoothly). There will be a “blood-sucking” event among other activities and lots of food and prizes! Be sure to register for a spot at the program. This is an after-hours event so you must be registered to attend. Program will be on November 19th, 6:30-8:30 pm. twilight1
