So, I’m a huge fan of Scaredy Squirrel. He’s adorable and paranoid. Basically, he’s awesome! I thought you all may enjoy this video from Scaredy Squirrel. Yes, it’s an advertisement for his book, but he gives some great tips on being safe this Halloween!
Have a safe and very fun Halloween!
We’ve got a lot of cool things happening at the Manlius Library in October, and one event in particular we need your help for!
Homework Help will keep on right through October. Every Wednesday from 5:00pm – 8:00pm come to the Children’s Circulation Desk with any homework problems, questions, projects, etc.
Your Day Off From School on Monday, October 14, 2013 will have a movie shown here at the library at 1:00pm. More information to come!
The weekend before Halloween (Saturday, October 26,2013) we will be putting on a Halloween Carnival for the elementary school kids. We could really use your help! Please let Miss Heather or Miss Kori know ASAP if you are able to come and work a “booth,” help set up, break down, or anything you are able to do! Pizza will be provided to all helpers, costumes are invited (just nothing scary or inappropriate please!). We hope you can lend a hand on this date. The carnival runs from 2:00pm – 4:00pm, but we would need helpers to set up beginning at 1:00pm. Call (315)682-6400 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, to help out, or if you have any questions or concerns!
Pizza & Books will be occurring on Sunday, October 27, 2013. More information to come on this event as well!

Hey guys. So, September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. I know a lot of you all have library cards, awesome! But you may have friends or family who don’t!
Remind them that a library card is one of the most important tools in your wallet! It’s not just about checking out books, but checking into knowledge! (I know, corny, right, but it’s true!).
There are so many other cool things you can do with your library card! Download music, eBooks, use our databases (eh-hem, school work and projects!), and of course, check out the multitude of books throughout the Onondaga County Library system!
Send them in and have them sign-up! And if you don’t have a card, GET ONE!
I’m baaaaccckkkk! Welcome back everyone! Hope you guys had a great summer! I know I did!
So to kick this Fall out right, I’ve got a cool update! We are going to combine together Club Middle School with Pizza & Books into this crazy, awesome, match up! There will still be Homework Help available to those of you who need that. It will be every Wednesday evening from 5:00pm – 8:00pm at the Children’s Circulation Desk. Just come on up and ask me questions. There will be room for you to work if you need the space.
