Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, March 14, 2019

One of the most delicious days of the year is coming up, and we need your help to celebrate. Thursday, March 14 is Pi Day (Get it? 3.14!) and we’ll be celebrating all of our favorite pies with a pie taste test!

If you’d like to enter a pie to the taste test, please give us a call at 518-861-7239. You can make any kind of pie you like! We’re not fussy.

There will be a prize for the pie-maker who gets the most votes. If you’re not a pie-maker yourself, you’ve got a role to play too: We’ll need lots of pie-tasters to eat and vote!

Trivia Night

This Friday, March 15 at 7 p.m. make a team, study up, and BYOB to our mind-twisting trivia contest! Entrance is $5 and the winners take half the door. Contestants must be 21 and up, please.

Mystery Book Club

Please join us for a meeting of our newest book club, which is focused exclusively on mysteries! We’ve got members interested in every subgenre from intense psychological thrillers to low-key cozy mysteries and every type of mystery in between.

If you love a good whodunit, please join us on Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m. for a discussion of the “The Beautiful Mystery” by Louise Penny. I know we have a ton of Louise Penny fans here, so this would be a great time to join the club!

Moroccan Potluck

It’s almost time again for another of our ever popular Eat Around the World Potluck dinners! Come broaden your culinary horizons and share a meal a bunch of friendly people.

This month we’re taking a trip to the northwest African nation of Morocco! Please join us at 6pm on Monday, March 25 to join in the festivities and bring a dish to share. If you don’t already have a favorite recipe from that part of the world, come on in and grab a cookbook.

Story Time

One of the best ways of getting our youngest friends to become strong readers is by exposing them to a wide variety of readers and reading environments. For that reason, and also just because it’s just fun, we have two Story Times each week on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m.

Tuesday Story Times with Miss Ann are targeted at preschoolers, while our Wednesday Story Times with Miss Erika are for toddlers (but we don’t mind older or younger friends on either day). Please join us for mornings of stories, songs, and bubbles.

Juice & Jammies

Speaking of Story Time, we also have a special evening Story Time that we call Juice & Jammies coming up on Friday, March 29.

Put on your pj’s and join Miss Erika for a low-key pre-bedtime story, and snack. This will be the perfect thing to get your kiddos ready to drift off to dreamland.
