Library Hosts Fall Events for Families
No matter what your age or interests, you can find a fun program at the Southern Pines Public Library this fall.
In October the library will host events for kids and teens like Preschool Story Times, the teen Halloween party, Family Fun Night, and veggie carving.
Adults can look forward to an Oldies and Goodies movie as well as the Explorations Forum on "Change Comes Knocking: The Story of the N.C. Fund."
Family Fun Night returns on Thursday, Oct. 18, at 5:30 p.m., and it's all about cows. Families of children grades K-5 are invited to come listen to stories that will "mooove" you, make a craft and stick around for a free dinner.
Preschool Story Time for children ages birth through 5 years will be held Wednesdays, Oct. 10, 17 and 31, from 3:30 to 4:00 p.m. with stories, songs, fun and playtime. Stay tuned for a special storytime to be held Nov. 1 in celebration of Family Literacy Day.
For teens, the library will be hosting a veggie carving event, "Not Just Pumpkins" on Tuesday, Oct. 9, from 5 to 6 p.m. Middle-schoolers are invited to take part in this Pizza with Pizzazz! Free pizza will be served while they create scary and unusual art just in time for Halloween.
High school students are invited to join TAB, the Teen Advisory Board, for a kickoff Halloween party Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 5:30 p.m. and Teen Read Week Oct. 14-20. This year's theme is "It Came from the Library." Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Adults won't want to miss out on the fun either, and should stop by the library for the Oldies and Goodies film series. This month the library will be showing a movie known as one of the greatest films in history, "Casablanca." This 1942 classic takes place in unoccupied Africa during the early days of World War II. Rick Blaine runs the most popular nightclub in town, and his loyalties are put to test when his old flame appears.
Enjoy a classic film and a cup of tea on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
As part of the library's ongoing lecture series Explorations: A Forum for Adults, "Change Comes Knocking: The Story of the N.C. Fund" will be the feature presentation on Sunday, Oct. 14, at 2:30 p.m. This documentary film tells the story of the bi-racial, anti-poverty organization called the North Carolina Fund, which confronted the issues of race, class and politics during the 1960s in an attempt to stop the cycle of poverty. Refreshments will be served, courtesy of the Friends.
