SYRACUSE — Join a tree walk of shame when the Pollinators Club meets for the last time this year at noon Thursday, Sept. 30. Non-native and invasive trees will be looked at during the hour walk around the Syracuse Public Library. These non-natives will be compared with native trees, which benefit bees, insects and birds while creating a regenerative environment.
Mahjong Hour Change
Mahjong is a game that takes practice and it also offers a good opportunity to spend time with others. The library is switching to a winter mahjong schedule beginning in October. Several tables will be set up in the downstairs meeting room to play from 1 – 3 p.m. every Monday.
The library’s homeschool program will be highlighting art when it meets again at 10:30 a.m. Friday, Oct. 1. School-aged children are welcome to attend the program. The homeschool program occurs every Friday through November. A tentative list of its topics can be found at www.syracuse.lib.in.us/childrens.html.
Meanwhile, toddlers and preschoolers can enjoy a story and playtime during story time, which is also at 10:30 a.m. every Friday.
October Book Club Pick
The book selection for the October adult book club is “Outfoxed” by David Rosenfelt. It is a part of the popular Andy Carpenter mystery series, which centers on lawyer and dog rescuer Andy Carpenter. In “Outfoxed,” he must solve the riddle of why and how a convicted fraud escaped from prison with his adopted dog. Additionally, Carpenter must uncover whether the man then killed his own wife and his accuser following his escape. Copies of “Outfoxed” are available for checkout. The discussion times are at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19, on Zoom and at 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 21.
