Thank you to CHADWIC Home for bringing the Paint It Purple event to the library. The Paint It Purple campaign is in support of people working together to prevent, stop, and end violence against women. We thank everyone for joining us, especially Pam, Paula and Sherry from CHADWIC home and those who came to paint a canvas purple in support of ending violence against women.

Staff Pick of the Week is “Pretty Little Wife” by Darby Kane. From the book jacket:
“Debut author Darby Kane thrills with this twisty domestic suspense novel that asks one central question: shouldn’t a dead husband stay dead?
Lila Ridgefield lives in an idyllic college town, but not everything is what it seems. Lila isn’t what she seems. A student vanished months ago. Now, Lila’s husband, Aaron, is also missing. At first these cases are treated as horrible coincidences until it’s discovered the student is really the third of three unexplained disappearances over the last few years. The police are desperate to find the connection, if there even is one. Little do they know they might be stumbling over only part of the truth….
With the small town in an uproar, everyone is worried about the whereabouts of their beloved high school teacher. Everyone except Lila, his wife. She’s definitely confused about her missing husband but only because she was the last person to see his body, and now it’s gone.”

In Dungeons & Dragons, the players form an adventuring party who explore fantasy worlds together as they embark on epic quests. The collective creativity in your D&D game builds stories that you’ll tell again and again— ranging from the stuff of legend to absurd incidents that’ll make you laugh years later. Due to the popularity of the D&D Club we will be splitting into adult and youth clubs. The youth group will be held on November 2nd,16th and 30th and the adult group will be held on November 9th and 23rd. The youth group is for those aged 9 to 15 and adult group is for those aged 16 and up. The Clubs run from 4:30-6:30 on Thursdays. We hope you can join us!
