Bayne Library will be closed Thursday, November 28 and Friday November 29, 2019 in observance of Thanksgiving
Join us November 26th at 10:30 a.m. when we discuss A Lesson Before Dying by Ernest J. Gaines
From the author of A Gathering of Old Men and The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman comes a deep and compassionate novel, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award. A young man who returns to 1940s Cajun country to teach visits a black youth on death row for a crime he didn’t commit. Together they come to understand the heroism of resisting.

The next Friends of Bayne Library meeting will be Tuesday, November 19th at 6:00 p.m.
What are Friends for?
Great Friends make great libraries!
Kids aged 6-10 are invited to create, tinker, and play the second Saturday of the month at 2:00 p.m. Each month we’ll explore a new topic and activity to get a better understanding of coding and how it works!
One of the most important things to understand when building codes is sequencing. This month we’ll use story charts and Beebots to understand why order matters.
Space is limited. Please call Bayne Library to register!
Children ages 1 to 4 are invited to join us Saturday, December 21st from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. for Sensory Play Time. Sensory play encourages the development of fine motor skills, social skills, language skills and is just plain fun!
We will be set up for a full hour – stay as little or long as you wish.
Kids ages 9 to 12 are invited to join us on Monday, November 25th @ 5:30 p.m. This month we are reading, Fourth Grade Rats by Jerry Spinelli
A fast, fun, friendship read from the Newbery-award winning author of Maniac Magee.
Fourth graders are tough. They aren’t afraid of spiders. They say no to their moms. They push first graders off the swings. And they never, ever cry. Suds knows that now that he’s in fourth grade, he’s supposed to be a rat. But whenever he tries to act like one, something goes wrong. Can Suds’s friend Joey teach him to toughen up…or will Suds remain a fourth grade wimp?
Rapid-fire dialogue and a hilarious string of episodes unfold a story with a valuable message about peer pressure and the importance of being oneself. – From Booklist
