DELMAR– A presenter from the Cornell Cooperative Extension will join us for our Friday, Oct. 21, Coffee and Conversation to discuss personal finances as they relate to aging. Participants will learn strategies to assess financial situations, understand the importance of goal setting, and share ways to manage personal spending plans. You will also learn how to protect yourself from consumer scams. The event takes place at 1 p.m. in the Community Room.
Trunk or Treat
at the park
How many treats do you get when the library and the Town of Bethlehem Parks and Recreation department team up to host an awesome Halloween extravaganza? A whole trunkload!
Drop by Elm Avenue Park Wednesday, Oct. 26, beginning at 4 p.m. for our annual Trunk or Treat community-wide event, featuring dozens of creative trick-or-treating stations hosted by local groups such as the library Friends, area scout troops, Delmar-Bethlehem first responders, high school clubs and more.
Halloween costumes are too special to wear just once, so strut your spooky stuff while “trunk or treating” your way through the parking lot. This free event is suitable for all ages.
Trick or Treat
at the library
This Halloween, pint-sized princesses, ghouls, pirates and superheroes will haunt our hallways as they trick-or-treat their way among the books. On Monday, Oct. 31, we’re hosting a special trick-or-treating time for our littlest patrons up to age 6 and their families. Stop by any time between 10 a.m. and noon. Kids can show off their costumes and enjoy Halloween in a safe, dry place. Pick up a free treat bag in the Children’s Place and get started on some library trick-or-treating fun.
This annual event at the library is a favorite among staffers, so don’t be surprised if you see some of them getting into the spirit of things, too!
If you’d like to take advantage of our e-book and audiobook collection, Libby experts from OverDrive will be available later this month in a series of virtual programs to help you access our library’s digital collection through the free Libby app.
Libby Basics on Monday, Oct. 24, at 10 a.m. is for those who haven’t used the Libby app yet to borrow digital titles. This virtual session will get you up to speed.
