We’re back! Our maintenance closing is over, and we’re back to the library and ready for an exciting October!
On Saturday, BSR Paranormal will be at the library at 2 p.m. to talk about paranormal research. They’ll stay after the library closes and demonstrate their equipment by hunting for ghosts at the Teen Library. Join us – if you dare!
Also, don’t forget that Monday, October 10, is Columbus Day, and the library will be closed for the holiday. All library campus buildings will reopen with regular hours on Tuesday, October 11; the Teen Library will open at noon October 11-15 because of DeKalb Central’s fall break.
