Families with young children are invited to Bayne Library for an evening of fun on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. Get to know other local families. We’ll provide some great classic games, puzzles, crafts and of course, some great books to read together. We will also offer a light snack at the end of the evening. No registration is required; drop by anytime between 6:00 – 7:30 and join in the fun. So get those dinner dishes done, and head on over.
Join us on Friday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. for the showing of a great classic movie.
Come join us on Friday, September 4th for the first movie in the month of September in which we celebrate the Marx Brothers! The feature will be DUCK SOUP. The movie is about a wealthy woman who insists that Groucho Marx be appointed leader of the small, bankrupt country of Fredonia before she will continue to provide much-needed financial aid. Meanwhile, neighboring Sylvania is attempting to annex the country.
On Friday, September 11th, we’ll be showing NIGHT AT THE OPERA where the Marx Brothers run amuck in the world of opera when Groucho meets an aspiring singer who is determined to win the love of a fellow performer.
All are invited on Friday, September 18th, as we watch ANIMAL CRACKERS, a 1930 Marx Brothers comedy in which mayhem and zaniness ensue when a valuable painting goes missing during a party in honor of famed African explorer.
Our final movie in the Marx Brothers’ month is HORSE FEATHERS, a 1932 film that stars all four Marx Brothers and revolves around a college football game.
In the month of October, we’ll feature your favorite MONSTER movies!
We hope to see you every Friday. Oh, and there will be popcorn!
Thursdays at 11:00 a.m. children of all ages are welcome when accompanied by an adult caregiver. Join us for stories, songs and a simple craft.

Join us September 8, 2015 at 10:30 when we discuss Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale.
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are only valued if their ovaries are viable….Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and tour de force.–Amazon.com
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask at the front desk for more information or to reserve a copy of this classic dystopian novel.
Thanks to all the lovely ladies who joined us for our Fancy Nancy Tea Party! And a special thank you to our beautiful ballerina, Laura Taylor and our fabulous flutist, Abigail Tuffiash!
