company', which means that people who are unhappy (perhaps because they have
been following the gloomy, sad and dismal adventures of the Baudelaire
orphans in A Series of
Unfortunate Events) are often drawn to others who feel the same
way. If you're looking for company in your Baudelaire misery, come
join us at the Library for games, crafts and more. You might just find yourself
having a Very Fine Day after all. Registration required.

Summer may be over, but there’s time for one
last campout – or “camp-in!” Kids can bring dad, grandpa, big brother or
another important grown-up guy to pitch a tent in the Library Meeting Room.
We’ll share treats, play games, do activities and tell scary stories. All the
fun of camping without the mosquitoes! Registration is required for kids (no
need for “grown-ups” to register separately).
