SYRACUSE — The Syracuse Public Library will host the following events in October and November:
Who Wants To Party?
Costumes make a good party great, so now might be the time to plan the outfits for the Winter Carnival dance. The theme is masquerade. Tuesday, Oct. 30, and Wednesday, Oct. 31, are two fun-filled evenings of dress-up and partying at the Syracuse Public Library. At 5 p.m. Oct. 30, there will be an hour with DJ Scott Rocker where families show off their costumes and dance moves.
On Oct. 31, the children’s department will offer treats and games during Syracuse’s trick-or-treat hours from 6 to 8 p.m. Come in from the cold for a carnival of child-friendly games and a visit to the pumpkin patch. The morning story time will still give children a chance to read and talk about farm animals at 10:30 a.m., but the children’s department is closing at noon on Oct. 31.
This week, WorkOne is offering classes by the computers from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 31. Computers will be reserved to provide additional guidance with job searched and other job related skills.
On Thursday mornings, continue to meet at 9 a.m. for a walk on the trails followed by advanced chair yoga at the Syracuse Library at 9:30 a.m. If there’s inclement weather, the walk will be relocated to meet at the community center. At 10:15 a.m. Nov. 1, the Friends meet after yoga to talk about their winter activities. The Friends welcome people to visit and meet others interested in library activities.
The Syracuse Library is making it easier to connect with databases and services. The link’s page on the website has connecting links for a variety of topics from free information providers. A new source of information is the Merck manual and Merck veterinary guide.
This is the first year of operation for the Parkview Health and Ronald McDonald Care Mobile that provides free healthcare services to children ages five and under. They will be using the Syracuse Library’s parking lot and are offering walk-in services only. Parents are welcome to sip hot chocolate and wait inside the library. The mobile will be at the library from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7. All information about services is on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile website.
People who have signed up for homebound service will be getting their first delivery of library check-outs. This is a service where deliveries will be made every three weeks and does not prohibit the additional use of the library.
