Smartest Card - Luckiest Card
A library card is the smartest card in your wallet. During September, it could also be the luckiest card in your wallet! To celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month, 100 Golden Tickets have been hidden in adult, teen and children’s books around Forsyth Public Library. If you check out a book that happens to include a lucky ticket, it can be redeemed at the library for a small prize. Year around, your library card gives you access to over 47,000 items in the library, thousands of digital items and millions of items from other libraries, making your card both smart and lucky!  

Story Time!
Preschool Story Time with Miss Sandi and Miss Lisa begins on Friday, Sept. 2 at 10 a.m. at the library. At this session, we will celebrate favorite children’s book character Pete The Cat! On Sept. 9, we will read stories about Teddy Bears for National Teddy Bear Day. Story Time sessions are designed for children ages 3-5 and their parent or caregiver. No registration is required. Your child will also get to make a fun craft at each session. Siblings are welcome.

Food For Thought
The Food For Thought book group meets Thursday, Sept. 8 at 6 p.m. to discuss A Man Called Ove by Frederik Backman. People Magazine called the book, “A charming debut …You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll feel new sympathy for the curmudgeons in your life. You’ll also want to move to Scandinavia, where everything’s cuter.” For this meeting the group will be sharing pizza (Dutch treat) while discussing the book. Please RSVP to the library if you plan to attend. 

M-F Yearbook Donations
