What is Happening at the Library?
Card-Designing – Join Mary McCormick in the program room for a fun and easy card-making class that yields beautiful results. You will go away with four cards that are a gift in themselves! Mary provides the instruction and materials for $10. All you need is a sharp pair of scissors. The next class times available are November 10th at 1:00pm or 6:00pm. Those wishing to attend need to contact the library to sign up ahead of time because space is limited and these classes fill up quickly.
Veterans Day – The library will be closed in observance of Veterans Day on Wednesday, November 11th.
 
Celebrating Agatha Christie – Last month marked 100 years of “puzzle-plot novels” from famed author, Agatha Christie. The Mysterious Affair at Styles introduced the world to her eccentric character and main protagonist, detective Hercule Poirot. From there, Agatha Christie became the most widely published author of all time, only outsold by The Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 80 novels and short story collections, as well as 14 plays.  
At Moyer Library, we have a handsome collection of many of her titles available for checkout.
