All ages are invited to take part in free events at the Riverbank Library this month, beginning with a month-long candy count program. All ages can visit the library through Oct. 31 to guess the number of candies in the library’s candy jar. The closest guess, without going over, will win the entire jar of candy.
“Python Ron” McGee will bring his favorite lizards and snakes to the library on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 3:30 p.m. This educational, hands-on show-and-tell is open to all ages.
The Riverbank Library Book Club will meet on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 4 p.m. to discuss The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. Library book clubs provide an opportunity for community members to expand their knowledge of books through meaningful discussion with others.
Children can enjoy Halloween fun at the library on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at 3:30 p.m. Participants can make bats, witches’ brooms, and colorful masks. Children who find the library’s spooky bookmark will win a prize. Costumes are welcome, but not required. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Riverbank Library.
