September Released Tasks

The Library is gearing up for a busy fall. We hope you can join us for a few of the many programs and activities we are offering this September. Book Babies, Story Times, LEGO Hour, and Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8s Club will be starting back up for the young ones. Adults get programs from the Library, the Friends of the Library and the Library Foundation.  Events hosted by the Library include the Adult Reading Challenge Book Club on the 7th, a Lunch & Learn program all about the River Clay Fine Arts Festival on Saturday, September 9th, Free Movie Nights on the 14th and 28th, 3rd Friday in Jones Park, and a Lunch & Learn program about Mildred Nungester Wolfe and the Decatur Arts on Wednesday, the 20th. We will also have a booth at the River Clay Fine Arts Festival. So stop by and visit us. On top of that the Friends of the Decatur Public Library will host classical guitarist Peter Fletcher on Thursday, the 21st. The Foundation will be sponsoring their annual fundraiser the Shoe Show on the 27th and all proceeds go to support DPL.  For more information about any of the programs offered by DPL please visit http://decatur.lib.al.us/.

The released tasks for this month are:

September is a great month for a road trip or journey and that is the first task for this month. Read any book that is about a road trip or journey that is from one physical place to another. To put it into context for this year’s challenge: think about how the American west was settled. People left the east and traveled by foot, wagon, train or horse to start over.

The second task of the month is the Texas Rangers. Read any book that is about a Texas Ranger, the legendary law enforcement officer –not a baseball player. The modern day Ranger came into being on September 1, 1935. The Ranger history goes back to 1823 when Stephen Austin formed a group of men to range over the territory of Texas where over 600 families had settled.

Happy Reading!
