Autumn's Arrival

Whether you want to identify what trees those colorful leaves fell off of, or bake the perfect pumpkin (or apple) pie, stop by the library this fall and browse our collection to find just what you're looking for.  
If you're not into cooking, or trees aren't your thing, how about curling up with a blanket and escaping to someplace warm and sunny with one of our fiction books, or DVDs?  

Of course, as the days get shorter, and a chill is in the air, it's the perfect time to create lasting memories: pull your kids close and read to them.  We've got a great bunch of kids' books!

The Martians are Coming!

Forced by a series of unfortunate events, an astronaut on a mission to Mars tests his knowledge and skills to survive, alone, under harsh conditions, limited resources, and without any way to signal for help.  

Join the lunchtime book group on Thursday, September 29, in the Library, to discuss this acclaimed debut novel by Andy Weir, that sparked the hit movie.  Bring your lunch!

Copies of the The Martian in book and audio formats are available in the library.

Jungle Book

On August 25, at noon, the WMCC Book Discussion group will meet in the Library to discuss the short stories that comprise Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book.

Kipling was heavily influenced by British India, the country of his birth and where he had spent many of his formative years.  After living in England, he and his new family settled in Vermont, where, in 1894, he began to write stories about an Indian boy, Mowgli, and his animal friends who inhabit the jungles of India.  These stories became two volumes of The Jungle Books.  

The Jungle Books' rich characters and settings have inspired films, television series, animated productions, radio shows, comic books, and have been adapted for the theater.

Closed, due to work being done to the library
