The Dalton Community Library would like to begin November with a huge “thank you!”

Our Fall Book and Bake Sale was a great success. It was a busy day and so nice to see many of our friendly patrons. Volunteers worked hard to set up the sale, bake homemade goods and donate books.

All profits from the sale benefit our patrons and groups in numerous ways.

Our children’s programs and adult groups are going extremely well this fall. We love having such successful programs with so many friendly people.

An especially busy day is Tuesday, and with attendance so high, we’ve decided to extend our hours for this day. We will now stay open until 8 p.m. on Tuesdays. We are excited to offer longer hours and are sure many patrons will utilize the library during these new times.

Our new weekly hours beginning in November are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays and Tuesdays; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; and closed Wednesdays and Sundays.

We are forming a new crochet group at the library with a facilitator who has been crocheting for years. She is willing to head the group, welcoming both beginners and those who already know how to crochet. For information, stop in or call the library at 570-563-2014. We are seeking the most accommodating day and time for everyone who’d like to join. This group will meet once a month to start, and it will later be decided if more meetings will be planned.

Another group which meets at the library is the Mahjong group. They gather to play the game at 10 a.m. Mondays and Thursdays and are willing to teach new players or have people watch until they’re comfortable to play. They’re very dedicated and have a lot of laughs while playing.

At the Dalton Community Library, we’re having a fantastic fall full of smiles and friendly patrons. We encourage anyone interested in our programs to stop in to watch or give them a try. The helpful staff is always willing to answer any questions.

Stop in and visit!
