Imagine that! Newark Library TAG will be hosting a fun Fall Mixer with sweet activities involving lots of sugar and music and pizza! You need to register for this after-hours event to be held on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. so call in early or email khannon@aclibrary.org to get on the list. We are limiting the number of teens who can come to 25, just so ya’ know. The number to call is 510-795-2627 x 7 – that’s the Information Desk during our open hours or call extension 18 to leave Kathleen a message anytime.

 We’re having a Halloween Craft! It’s not too scary. Come and  make a Mr. Bones if you are old enough to wield scissors and your very own Jack O’Lantern if you are not. We’ll hold it on Saturday, October 22, 2011 at 3:00pm in the Meeting Room.

Boo!Have you missed us? Our events did slow a bit in the last couple of weeks but we are ramping up to try to cover all the bases as you’ll see in this post.

It’s that spooky time of year again and we are ready at Newark Library with a shivery Magic Show put on by Blake Maxam on this coming Saturday afternoon, 10/15 at 3 p.m. And we have a boo-tiful choice of b-o-o-ks out on display to whet the horrific appetite of all ages, too. We will have a Halloween craft on 10/22 at 3 p.m. and a Halloween Teen Party on 10/29 at 7 p.m. Call us at 510-795-2627 x 7 when we are open to find out more.

Other than that we are offering 3 Toddler Times now to accommodate the influx of new babies and moms and dads. That’s on Wednesday or Friday mornings at 10 a.m. Friday Gaming is happenin’ every 2 weeks for kids 10 and up, and they love it! That will be happening next on 10/21 at 3 p.m. Even our Reading Club for 9-13 year olds has some renewed interest now. We’ll meet on 10/27 at 3:30 p.m.

Adult Services is offering classes with Microsoft Excel and a workshop on Aging Safely at Home on Saturdays. The Excel class is full but you can still get in to the Aging Safely at Home workshop, that will happen on this Saturday as well at 10 a.m. And don’t forget Stitch an Inch, knitters who meet every other Saturday since forever will be meeting again this Saturday, 10/15 at 12:30-2:30 p.m.

All of these activities are free to you, thanks to the Newark Library League and their ongoing book sale!
