Or is it coosie or maybe even Koosie?
Doesn't really matter! It's a drink container sleeve that can help keep your drink cold or your hands protected from a hot beverage.
And, you can make your very own during Simply Crafts, a FREE adult craft program, on Tues. Nov. 5 at 6 p.m.
No reservation is needed and all materials are free.

You just can't beat famed actors Steve Martin and John Candy in this 1987 Thanksgiving comedy.
In Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Neal Page (Martin) and Del Griffith (Candy) are two strangers that are thrown together by a crazy snowstorm during holiday travel.
Neal an uptight, successful executive and Del an underachieving, really laid back shower curtain ring salesman, go together like oil and water! Needles to say that Del annoys the mess out of Neal! Even as everything that could go wrong does, and Neal's grip on sanity - from time to time - seems to be slipping, the two end up forming a heartwarming bond.
A really great movie! Thumbs up all the way!
If you have never seen Planes, Trains and Automobiles, you'll have the chance on Thurs. Nov. 21. at 6 p.m. It's Ben's pick for November's Third Thursday Flicks.
A funny movie, a big screen and refreshments. What could be better? Well maybe if it were free...
IT IS FREE!
So, mark your calendars and plan on coming. It's wonderful, holiday entertainment for the whole family!
It's hard to believe that we are just two months away from 2019 ending. It has been an amazing year at Harrisville Library but the fun is not over yet. We have some fun programs planned before the year comes to a close.
In recent years coloring has emerged as an adult activity to relax and lower stress. Most of us remember our childhood and coloring in our coloring books - first with those huge crayons and if we were lucky, eventually a huge box of Crayolas with that built-in sharpener in the back. Remember how fun that was? Today, there are numerous companies producing coloring books for adults. In addition, we are not limited to crayons anymore; today we have gel pens, markers, Sharpies, and colored pencils as choices.
Coloring can provide more than relaxation and stress reduction. When we participate in this activity in a group setting, it provides us with another activity that seems to be in short supply today in this electronic world in which we live - conversation. Live socializing with real people. While engaging your hands, you're free to talk with your neighbor across the table. Talk about your children (or grandchildren), reminisce, share the ups and downs of caring for a parent or spouse. The possibilities are endless.
CMRLS libraries have numerous coloring programs planned, and we would like to invite you to find a location near you and participate in one of these enjoyable events. Click on the link and enter "color" or "coloring" into the search field to see our upcoming programs.
By Thursday, you may be needing a break from all that school work. So why don't you stop by the Raleigh Public Library for an hour of fun. Each Thursday we will have a fun activity planned just for elementary kids and we are calling it Afterschoolers.

In a world full of fads, women's fitness is not a craze or a novelty or even a whim. A fad is defined as an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived or without basis in the object's qualities. Synonyms include fixation, trend, fashion, or the latest thing; however, none of these terms apply to long-term women's health and fitness.
