November is a fun filled month

November at the Worthington Library is full of events. On Thursday, November 11, we will be showing the movie "Bottle Shock" at 7:00 pm. This is a fun movie about California wines breaking into the world scene and is based on a true story.

On Saturday the 13th, the library is hosting National Game Day from 10:00 to 4:00 pm. We're hoping to have the library filled with gamers of all kinds. We have many board and card games and some computers games, as well. If you have a favorite game, bring it to share. Our newest game is Wits & Wagers Family from the folks at North Star Games. This is the third annual National Game Day and there is a contest among libraries to see how many players we can get. Come in to play and boost our numbers. Snacks will be available and it's all free.

Last, but not least, on Saturday, November 20, the library is holding a Harvest Celebration to celebrate our recently awarded "On the Same Page" grant. This event will be held at the RH Conwell school cafeteria from 4:00 - 6:00 pm. Many local farmers and organizations will display information about their work. Demonstrations, samples and refreshments are part of the celebration as well as music performed by Sarah Stockwell. The library table will have copies of the book The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan which is the subject of the grant. This will be a fun and informative celebration that you won't want to miss!
