Duck Hunt at the Brandon Library!

When you find a duck, take it to the Circulation Desk and exchange it for an entry form for the Christmas Drawing from the Friends of the Brandon Library. 

The prize will be a $100 gift card.

Getting Cozy With Thanks at the Pearl Public Library!

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.

Pretty good stuff, huh?! A pretty good gift idea too with you know what coming up next month!

Speaking of gifts for yourself or someone special and one that spells THANKS - literally -how about Tin Can Punched Votive candles?

That's coming up for the Pearl Library's How-To Tuesday November offering on Tues. Nov. 19 at 6 p.m. It's a FREE adult craft program. No reservation needed and all materials supplied.

So, come on and join in a festive atmosphere full of creativity and fun!

Talk about an atmosphere of fun, don't forget about Medieval Fest, the library's November Family Night program on Tues. Nov. 12 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. starring the SCA'S Shire of IronOx!
The Shire of IronOx will have displays on armor, weapons, costumes, daily life and have live hand-to-hand combat exhibitions of the Middle Ages.

The Shire of IronOx is the same Medieval reenactment group seen at CelticFest in Jackson.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a dish and enter the potluck contest for a feast fit for kings and queens. The contest will be held at 6 p.m. and the favorite dish wins the Best Potluck Dish trophy.

In addition to potluck offerings, Pizza Shack of Jackson, a big Pearl Library and Family Night supporter is generously donating pizza that will be available while the supply lasts.

Also feel free to dress in your finest Middle Ages costume. Bring the whole family and all your friends! 

It's all FREE!

Don't miss out!

We'll see you there!
