When’s the last time you planned a night at home with family or friends? How about an evening of games, juggling, magic tricks, or movies with some homemade, old-fashioned goodies? The nights are getting shorter and cooler so it’s the perfect time of year to be thinking of a potluck gathering. Your library has all the inspiration you need to get started. With literally hundreds of movie titles in genres such as adventure, drama, film-noir, comedy, documentary and more, there is certain to be something to please your audience.
If it’s game night, play by the rules with proper instruction from the masters. Foster’s Complete Hoyle: an Encyclopedia of Games, Card Games for Dummies or Goren’s Hoyle Encyclopedia of Games will guarantee that everyone plays by the same set of rules. One Hundred Indoor Games You Can Play by Peter Arnold will have something that even curmudgeons will play. If they resist, appeal to their sweet side and get them into the kitchen to make the best popcorn balls ever. Or, keep them busy working on a batch of muscle building, old-fashioned fudge. The recipes for these treats are in the old, tried and true Fanny Farmer Cookbook. At the library there are row upon row of cookbooks. Check out as many as you would like and get that game night cooking!

How many of us grew up devouring Garfield and Peanuts comic books, reading them over and over until the edges became completely dog-eared? We no longer call them comics. Now they are categorized as graphic novels - a fictional, or non-fictional, story presented in comic-strip format. Our library has three separate graphic novel sections — one for adults, one for teens, and one for kids. The adult graphic novel section features Dilbert, Far Side, the non-fiction Manga guides, and more. Our teen section has a wide variety of series, including Bone, DragonBall Z, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and a variety of graphic classics. Consider reading The Odyssey presented in picture format, or Frankenstein as a pop-up book. The kids’ section contains such favorites as Calvin and Hobbes, Tintin, and Garfield. So branch out your regular reading choices with an old favorite or make a new one. Take a seat on our fabulous new benches and enjoy!
