Alpine Library Calendar of Free Events – November 2018

Greetings, everyone! It’s hard to believe it’s almost November, but we’re ready for some real fall weather and maybe some pie.

Library events LogoThis month we have a few changes to our after-school programs—Nov. 5-9 the schools will be having early release, so we’re moving our 3:30 programs to 1 pm for that week. The week of Thanksgiving, Nov 19-23, there will be no afterschool programs since the Alpine School District is on vacation.

Please note that the library will be closed on Monday Nov 12 in observance of Veterans’ Day, and on Thursday and Friday, Nov 22 and 23, for Thanksgiving.

Mail in Ballot Drop Off: We are serving as a mail ballot drop-off location during business hours only, from Monday Oct 29 through Tuesday November 6.  There will be a table in the lobby where you can drop them off. Please don’t put your ballots in the book drop—it doesn’t know what to do with them!

Here are some of our special events this month:

Death Café  – Thursday, November 1 at 11 am
