Holiday Happenings at the Library!

 Hi All!  We have many fun things planned for the library this upcoming holiday season!  We will be selling "Historical Turin" calendars as a fundraiser.  Each one will cost $20.00 and have wonderful images from the Old Turin DVDs. We only have 19 left, so call 348-6433 to reserve one, or email us, or facebook us!  Children can help us decorate our Christmas Tree on December 6th from 10:00-11:00 and Santa Claus will be visiting us on Sunday evening, December 14th at 6:00.  Bring the kids to visit with him, sing some carols, and they will get a present too!  It's not just for kids, it's fun to ring in the holidays with friends and neighbors! (Hopefully the famous D'Ambrosi winter village will be set up too.) The winner of our basket raffle will be pulled that evening also!  Watch for tickets to buy at the post office, Pioneer Cafe, library trustees, and at the library!  Hope to see you over the season, but if not.... Merry Christmas!

Updated Flu Clinic Date and Sue Retires!

 The Turin Library has been quite busy.  Rite Aid is sponsoring a flu clinic at the library on Wednesday, October 15th from 4:30-6:00.  Stop in and get your flu shot!  We are also having a Halloween Storyhour on Saturday October 18th from 10:00-11:00.  Kids of all ages are welcome to join us for Halloween stories, crafts, songs and games!  There is also a “Spooky Book” drawing going on, and kids can enter to win one of 5 scary books every day they visit the library!  The winners will be drawn on Thursday, October 23rd at 8:00.

     The library would like to thank Karl Frei for a generous donation of a laptop to be used at the library.  It is loaded with lots of features and over 10,000 files of music of all types.  Patrons are welcome to use the laptop at the library, just ask at the desk for details.

     We are sorry to see her go, but Sue Adsit is retiring from our library after working here for over 2 years.  She was a great asset in general, but especially while we were bar-coding the library for automation.  Sue did an excellent job and was especially helpful with any historical type questions.  Michele Liendecker will be taking her place so stop in and meet her!  Best of luck Sue…. But we know you won’t stay “retired” for long!

Flu Clinic Being Held on October 8th!

 Rite-Aid is having their annual Flu Clinic here at the Turin Library on October 8th from 4:30-6:00.  If you need a flu shot, stop in and get it here!

Summer Reading Program Ends with a Fizz and a Boom at the Turin Park!

 The Summer Reading kids met their challenge of reading 1,200, by reading 1,690!  We had a great time this summer.  Thanks to everyone who participated or helped us out, and a special thank you goes out to the parents who brought their kids each week!  We ended with water balloons at the park, sno-cones, parachute play and goody bags!    Check out our photos at the following link.    https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZ7FMHE    

                                                                                                                        

Summer Reader Challenge is 1,200 Books!

 We have been having a lot of fun so far here at the library.  So far we have made lab coats, mad scientist heads and hair.  We had an obstacle course thanks to our teen volunteers Kayley and Courtney!  We have experimented with mentos and alka seltzer, magnets, gloop, our parachute and other things.  We had a visit with Mr Fizztastic and his science/magic show and we rocked it out with the Sock Rockerz!  The kids chose 1,200 books to read in 5 weeks.  So far we are half way through and they have only read 402 books.  They better get going or the grownups get to throw water balloons at them!  If they read 1,200 books, they throw water balloons at the grownups!  Watch for a link soon to all of our photos.  https://www.flickr.com/photos/turlibphotos/
