    We are celebrating all things Poe this month as part of our Big Read grant. Stop in to get your free Poe book and be sure to join us for some of the really cool stuff we have happening this month to celebrate one of America’s most celebrated writers.
    This week’s suggestion for a mini adventure in the library, adventure #13: Come use our photo copier to make copies of your hand, funny book titles, weird images or something interesting you found on the internet. Got a kid and an hour? You have time for an adventure.
