September/October 2019

Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.
—Lauren DeStefano

The iCan Lab will be getting new iMacs with a Wacom Intuos Pro Pen & Touch Tablet to create a more fluid & enjoyable experience as you create your designs.  This project begins on August 20th.

Our other project, the Window Replacement is almost completed.  The final window passed it’s water test and the contractors are working on the punch list.

Next project is to tackle the outside in the rear of the building.  We’re planning and applying for grants to change some areas of the prairie to a three gardens:

  • Butterfly Garden
  • Community Garden
  • Sensory Garden

We’ll call upon the communities of Glenwood & Lynwood to assist us as we make this endeavor especially with the planned Community Garden.  We’ll be asking for community input as we move along.  We’ll provide the land & water.  We’ll need the residents help make the community garden thrive by planting, weeding, harvesting, and general maintenance of the raised beds.

Last year we tried our Fall Fest but decided it was best to continue on with our Halloween Bash on October 19th from 10 AM to 2 PM.  We’ve planned a spooktacular kid-friendly even with trunk or treat, face painting, CANDY, crafts, SOME MORE CANDY, games, A BIT MORE CANDY, pony rides, AND FINALLY A BUNCH OF CANDY, and much more!  Costumes aren’t mandatory but if you have them; please wear them!

As always, thank you to everyone who comes to the library to checkout materials, attend programs & events, and/or to catch up with friends.

Regards,

Brian Vagt
Library Director
