Boo! The leaves are beginning to change, there is a nip in the air, and ghosties, goblins and pumpkins are decorating some houses in the neighborhood. That must mean fall is here and Halloween is around the corner. Children of all ages are invited to a “Not So Scary Storytime” on Monday, October 24 at 6:00 p.m. at the Cambridge City Public Library. Wear your costume for a parade and enjoy a not too scary story and treats! No tricks, we promise.
We Want Your Input!
The Cambridge City Public Library is developing a new five-year plan, and we would like to hear your ideas as part of a citizen’s focus group, if you live within our service area. If you would like to serve on this short-term committee that will impact our long-term plans, please contact Karen at the library, 765-478-3335.
Cambridge City Public Library’s official budget adoption meeting will be, as always, open to the public. The budget adoption meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, October 25 at 4:00 pm. The regular library board meeting will begin at 4:10 pm on Tuesday, October 25. Both meetings will be held at Cambridge City Public Library at 600 W. Main St. in Cambridge City.
October Book Clubs
Both book clubs will be reading The Incredible Winston Browne by Sean Dietrich in October. Kim tells me that this month’s book is a good one; it’s set in a small town in Florida in the 1950’s. The Evening Book Club meets Tuesday, October 25, at 6:30 pm at the library to discuss and the Senior Center Book Club meets Wednesday, October 26 at 1:00 pm at the Golay Center at 1007 E. Main Street in Cambridge City. You can pick up your copy of this book at the Golay Center for the Senior Center Book Club or call 765-478-3335 to arrange a book for
the Evening Book Club.

Thanks to the more than 18 authors who traveled to our beautiful town to share in the love of books, literature and the
power of stories.
Would your little one like to read to a dog? Emerging and beginning readers of all ages will enjoy practicing reading with Amanda Corman’s trained therapy dogs at Cambridge City Public Library at PAWS for Reading.
