******************************************************************************

     Something “New” is starting at the Huron County Community Library in November.  Our Library Staff really misses our Communities so we are going “Out and About” to bring you a unique behind the scenes look at a variety of community people and places.  This month join us on Facebook Live and YouTube and enjoy the “Out and About” locations of our Willard and Greenwich locations.

     On Thursday, November 5 at 6 p.m. our first “Out and About” adventure at our Willard location with Miss Char will take us to Whispering Woods Farm.  Join her and Sue Garner and meet Miley the Goat.  Then take a walk with Larry the Cat.  This farm adventure is sure to leave you laughing.

     At our Greenwich location Miss Jenny has two “Out and Abouts” planned.  On Tuesday, November 3 at 4 p.m. join Miss Jenny for a look behind the scenes with Greenwich Fire, Police, and EMS as she drops off the amazing Thank You cards you all made.  And then, who doesn’t love apples?  Join Miss Jenny again on Friday, November 6 at 11 a.m. for a tour of a real apple orchard.

     Enjoy cooking fun with Miss Char on Monday, November 23 at 6 p.m.  Miss Char will share a special story time and a holiday dish.  Learn to make a broccoli dip just in time for Thanksgiving.

More Thanksgiving fun is planned for Wednesday, November 25 at 1 p.m.  On this day before Thanksgiving, Miss Char has a few stories to share.  This fun, virtual read features a “Do-It-Yourself” turkey necklace so be sure to stop by and pick up your “Grab it and Go Kit” 

     Playing is learning with S.T.R.E.A.M. at our Wakeman Library location.  Thanksgiving is just around the corner, so join us on Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 4 p.m. on Facebook Live to make an easy DIY Mason Jar Centerpiece for your holiday table.  And then on Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 6 p.m. finish your table off right with Miss Brenda and create Fall Napkin Rings.

     Celebrate Veterans’ Day with Miss Jenny on Facebook Live.  Learn how to make a patriotic windsock.  

     Teens join all Teen Programs live through Facebook or YouTube.  On Monday, Nov. 9 at 4 p.m. make a Pumpkin Garland.  Learn how to make origami pumpkins to use as decorations this holiday season.  Make a no-sew Turkey on Monday, Nov. 23 at 4 p.m. and make this turkey by using socks.  Kits available at the library while supplies last.

     Hey Teens!  Come play with us!!  Hop on Twitch Live to see us play video games such as “Fall Guys”.  Join us from 3-5 p.m. on Fridays Nov. 6 & 13.  

     Adults be sure to stop at our library locations in Willard, Greenwich, North Fairfield, and Wakeman and pick up your “grab and go” craft kits for each workshop while supplies last.  Then join us on Facebook Live and YouTube for tips on how to create our crafts.  On Tues. Nov. 10 at 6 p.m. join us virtually to create an 8x8 fun Thanksgiving Decal Design with Danielle Grace Designs.

     On Thursday, Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. take part in a virtual workshop on creating your own “Count Down” Holiday Décor.   We will create our own scratch off cards and each card will have a fun activity to do this holiday season.  Kits are available while supplies last.

     Join Miss Mitzi every Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. on Facebook Live for a live Story Time.  Featured kits are available and released weekly while supplies last.  Check at your Huron County Community Library location.  On Nov. 4 the Story Time theme will be “Dogs Like to Bark”, on Nov. 11 it is “Monkey See, Monkey Do”, on Nov. 18 “Hey Bears!  It’s time to Hibernate”, and Nov. 25 “Gobble, Gobble Turkey Fun”.  

      Join Miss Carolyn from our North Fairfield location for a Baby Story Time.  She will be live on Facebook Live Friday Nov. 13 and 27.  Each session features a sign language lesson and story for baby and you.

     The “Inspirational Book of the Month” for November at North Fairfield is “Whose Waves These Are” by Amanda Dykes and the “No Strings Attached Book” at Greenwich is “No Exit” by Taylor Adams.  

     “Monday Reads” at our Willard location meets the second Monday of the month.  They will be discussing “The Snow Child” by Eowyn Ivey on Monday, Nov. 9 at 10 a.m. and the “Awkward Book Club with Jo” will talk about “This is How it Is” by Laurie Frankel on Nov. 16 at 6 p.m.

     Our Wakeman Library location of the Huron County Community Library is partnering with the New London Public Library and Western Reserve Schools for a special Storybook walk this Fall and Winter.  The Storybook Walks will be located at the New London Schools on the wooded path and along the sidewalk on the north east side of the Western Reserve Elementary.  A new story will go up every 2 weeks.

     The Huron County Community Library has planned a special “GoToMeeting” for Monday, Nov. 2 at 6:30 p.m.  The topic will be: “Knowing Your Rights – Energy Disconnection & Reconnection”.  Are your electric and natural gas bills difficult to pay?  Do you know someone who is struggling to maintain service or get reconnected?  You are not alone.  Ohioans facing disconnection have rights and responsibilities that they are often unaware of.  There may also be payment assistance options available to avoid disconnection.  The Office of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel will explain what you need to know to maintain utility service and how to avoid energy disconnection scams.
