Calling all families with preschoolers!  Family Storytime will begin September 11th.  We are excited to offer fall evening storytime for our families with pre-school age – 1st grade children.  The whole family and older siblings are invited to experience crafts, song, and stories!  The fall program will run September 11 – October 23.  On October 30th we will have trick-or-treating at the library from 5 – 8 pm.


Our Friday Afterschool Movies begin again this week!  During the school year we show movies in the Community Room free of charge to all ages at 3:20 pm each Friday the library is open.  Bring your own drink in a container with a screw cap lid and your own snacks.  We have a listing of the movie titles available in the library. 


You are invited to the next Randolph Township History Symposium for September 16th at 6 pm in the library Community Room.  We will be exploring Randolph Township’s one-room school houses before the consolidation of 1948.  Up until 1948 the Randolph Township had ten one-room school houses.  During the consolidation of 1948 two one-room schools in Downs Township and one in Funks Grove Township moved into the Unit 4 school district.  Our focus will be on these thirteen schools and their history. 


We will be hosting Home Brewing with Kyle Karraker of Twin City Homebrewing on September 22 at 6:30 pm. Come learn about the art of brewing craft beer. No samples will be provided, and all ages are welcome.
