Family Lego
On Saturday, Oct. 18 from 10 to 11 a.m., Forsyth Public Library is bringing back Family Lego. Builders of all ages are welcome to come to the library with their families and use our collection of Lego blocks to build wonderful creations during building time. No registration is necessary.

Tech Club
Tech Club meets on Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. This program is for adults who need assistance with their iPads or iPhones, or for anyone who’d like to spend time with other people who enjoy using their devices. This month, the meeting will focus on device settings. Come prepared to talk about a favorite app that you make use of on a regular basis. Don’t forget to bring your iPhone or iPad with you to the meeting.

Who Was Black Bart?
On Thursday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m., Black Bart historian Sandi Lynch will give a talk about the most infamous person who ever called Forsyth home. Come learn about this gentleman-bandit’s ties to our village, his dispute with Wells Fargo and how he single-handedly pulled off 28 stagecoach robberies without firing a single shot in anger.

Drop-In Craft
Monday, Oct. 20 is a day off from school for Maroa-Forsyth students. Take that time to come in to the library between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to create something fun. The library will have many unique craft projects available, collected together into one bountiful do-it-yourself harvest. All ages are welcome. No registration necessary.

Baby TALK and Storytimes
Baby TALK and Storytimes continue during the month of October. On Wednesdays from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m., children ages birth through 3 are welcome to join us with their caregivers for books, songs and fingerplays. On Thursdays from 10 to 10:45 a.m., children ages 3-5 are welcome to join us for stories, seasonally themed crafts and other activities. No registration necessary.

Dewein Grain Elevator
The Dewein Grain Elevator is featured in the library’s display case this month, with pictures from the Forsyth/Hickory Point Township Historical Society’s collection. If you have memorabilia, photographs, articles or other items you would like to loan out for use in the display about this early Forsyth institution, please contact the library.

Library Notices
Did you know that you can arrange to have all your library notices sent to your email or to your phone as a text message? Instead of getting phone calls from the library, you can receive these quick, automated updates. If you switch to email or text notifications, you will also be reminded when you have items that are about to become overdue and when your library card needs renewed. If you have any questions or would like to switch to email or text notifications, call or come in to the library today. 
