Fall Fun at Brandon Public Library

October is one of our favorite months of the year here at the Brandon Library. What's not to love? The weather is finally beginning to taper off from the scorching days of summer, and the holiday season is about to kick off with a bang. So, in that case, why not start the season off here with your local library? Trust us, you're not going to want to miss what we have coming up.

Speaking of the holidays, we all know that the last three months of the year mean celebrations, crafts, and of course, cooking. Lots and lots of cooking. Some of us have our holiday food schedules in the bag.

Others...not so much.

That's where we come in! Whether you're a seasoned stove-top veteran or a culinary amateur, we've got you covered. Check out our new Cooking Basics class series and learn how to make the holiday staples you know and love. Call the Brandon Library at (601) 825-2672 to register for:

How to Make Perfect...

  • Cornbread: Monday, October 22 from 6:00-8:00 PM
  • Biscuits: Monday, October 29 from 6:00-8:00 PM
  • Pie Crust:Thursday, November 8 from 6:00-8:00 PM
When we're not cooking, we're crafting! Join us on Saturday, October 27 for part 1 of our Sweatshirt Jacket Art Project. You'll need a sweatshirt, material scraps, thread, and a sewing machine. If you don't have that last one, don't worry--we have a machine for you! 

Call the Brandon Library at (601) 825-2672 to register. There is a limited number of sewing machines available, so hurry while supplies last!

Already feeling that holiday stress? Make sure to stop by on Saturdays for Falun Dafa classes lead by Stephanie Zhang! Achieve inner tranquility and glean the mental and physical health benefits from the gentle meditation classes every Saturday from 2:30-3:30 PM.

Last but not least, what is October at the Brandon Library without our annual Fall Festival?

On Thursday, October 25 at 6:00 PM, join us here at the library for tons of games, snacks, face painting, bouncy houses, and more!

All ages are welcome to join in the fun, and while costumes are totally optional, they're definitely encouraged.

We'll see you there!
