A list of items most needed  by the food bank is available at the circulation desk. Food for Fines runs for the entire month of

A storytime for adults will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15.

During the hour-long activity, library staff members will read a selection of stories in genres.

“Once Upon a River” by Diane Setterfield will be the book to be discussed by the adult book discussion group at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 18.

A limited number of copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

A toddler and preschool dance party will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, for children ages 2 to 5 and their caregivers.

“The Stories Behind the Essays in Aldo Leopold’s Sand County Almanac” is the topic for the 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26, History’s Bookmark Night.

Professor Stan Temple will reveal dozens of stories behind Leopold’s essays and explain why the book’s timeless yet timely message resonates 70 years after it was first published.

Leopold’s 1949 book, “A Sand County Almanac,” had been rejected by several publishers who thought there would be no audience for it. Leopold learned it would be published only weeks before he died in 1948, and he never saw it in print.

It took almost 20 years for the book to finally gain an audience as the environmental movement emerged in the 1960s.

Additional information on the programs can be found online at  or by calling 284-6022.

 The library is at 151 S. Main St.
