Andrew Luck Book Club

Please join us in exploring the books in the Andrew Luck Book Club.

We are happy to announce that we now will be participating in the Andrew Luck Book Club.

The mission of the Andrew Luck Book Club is to share some of the books He’s enjoyed, and to build a continually-growing community of readers of all levels .The idea was initially planted during an interview in February 2015 with NBC Sports Network’s Men in Blazers who started in on him about his love of reading. Then, several months later, Kevin Clark from The Wall Street Journal wrote an article about him being the “NFL’s unofficial librarian”, someone would post something using the hashtag #ALBookClub. They knew they were on to something fun. Every month, He introduces a book for the “Rookies” (younger folks) that he loved as a kid, as well as a book for the “Veterans” (more seasoned readers). The goal for 2017 is to launch a book each month for “Rookies” and “Veterans.”

You will find these books on a special table in the main library. Here is a list to get you started.

How Many Can you read??? Be the first to check them all of the list at our Library an get your picture on the website. Happy Reading!!!!!!!

History Of Halloween

Straddling the line between fall and winter, plenty and paucity, life and death, Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival  of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory lll designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints and martyrs; the holiday, All Saints Day, incorporated some traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallow’s Eve and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a secular, community-based event characterized by child friendly activities such as trick or treating. In a number of countries around the world, as the days grow shorter and the nights grow colder, people continue to usher in the winter season with gatherings, costumes, and sweet treats.
