September "Notes on Reading" Blog


We have been really depressed about the lack of programs to push in the blog each month of this never-ending, pandemic-ridden year. However, good news - finally! Decatur Public Library will be hosting the 39th annual Quilt Show this year in October. You can call the Marketing and Outreach office at 256-340-5780 to reserve a space (limit 2 quilts per person) and you must have the quilts turned in to us by Wednesday, September 23rd by 3:00 pm.  They will be on display October 1st through October 30th.  Voting for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place “Viewer’s Choice” ribbons will be open October 1st through October 21st.  Be sure to come in and vote for your favorite!

As this is being written, we still have no word on when we might plan for a Book Club Meeting. We are not giving up, though. We are hopeful we can start planning small programs sometime this fall. If limited attendance is a condition of  hosting Book Club, we might have to schedule a couple of meetings with limited registration for each one. We would of course take notes on all books discussed and post the information in the Adult Reading Challenge binder outside our office to keep everyone up to date. 

For the September task for the Adult Reading Challenge, read a book that has the word “Music” in the title. The book does not have to be about music, just has to have the word "music" in the title. There are several in the physical collection, and CamelliaNet, and hoopla both have titles that will work as well.

We miss all of you!

Happy Reading!
