Here we are entering into October. We had a great time at the Iron Horse Festival and look forward to seeing you in the library.

October brings the East Texas Library Friends Book Club to the library on Saturday, Oct. 2 at 2 p.m. to discuss “Anxious People” by Frederik Backman. At this meeting we will also select two more books for upcoming club meetings. All are welcome to this event.

American Girls Historical Reading Club will meet Saturday, Oct. 9 at 10 a.m. to learn about Felicity. Felicity lived during the 1770s and you will discover some of her games, snacks and crafts. This is for girls age 7 and older with their mother or other adult female. Registration is a must and can be completed by calling the library at 903-569-2767. You must be registered by Thursday, Oct. 7.

Pajama Story Time for children ages 4 to 8 and their families will be on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 p.m. Come hear some bedtime stories and have a light snack.

Also on Oct. 14 at 2 p.m., through an American Libraries Association, Libraries Transform Communities grant, the library will be hosting a look at McFarland School at the Select Theater. Please, come and share your memories of the school and how things have or haven’t changed since your high school days. The event will be recorded for historical purposes.

Wednesday and Thursday mornings we have programs for our youngest readers. Wednesdays at 10 a.m. is for Toddlers ages 18 months to 3 years and their parents while Thursdays is for babies  (infant to 18m).  Both groups offer opportunities for stories, activities and fellowship.

Mineola Memorial Library would like to thank Rotary of Mineola for their generous donation. The library also received a donation from Lou Steele in memory of Ruth Lott.
