Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, August 22, 2013

Here we go; here we stay. This month’s Eat Around the World Pot Luck at the Altamont Free Library is going on “staycation.” We’re not going anywhere, no exotic, spicy destinations. We’re staying here; staying in Altamont, or Knox, or Guilderland Center.  Bring a dish made with ingredients grown or otherwise created as locally as possible.  It’ll be fun.

The date is Monday evening, Aug. 26, at 6 p.m. The menu, thus far, includes blackberry pie, and deviled eggs laid very close to our library home.

Probing question

Library patrons start asking when they think perhaps we’ve gone too long without one — without an adult trivia night.

And we always respond positively and graciously.

The next adult trivia event is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 27, at 7 p.m. Make up your own teams of four, or show up on your own, and we’ll match you with a team.

The cost, part of which goes to the winning team, is $5 per person. 

If you’re interested in that sort of thing, by all means BYOB.

Probing books

Two adult fiction book discussion groups will be meeting in September.  One meets on Monday, Sept. 9, at 7 p.m., to share views of Tenth of December, by George Saunders.  The date for the second is Monday, Sept. 23, also at 7 p.m., and the book in question is Light Between Oceans by M. L. Stedman.
