Family Reading Fest

Come to Forsyth Public Library on Saturday, November 18 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a family reading fest. Snuggle under a cozy tent with your child and a good book. We will have a “campfire” for you to enjoy, too. After a good book, make some walking s’mores to take home with you.

Dance with Me

Spend an extra special time with your child during “Dance With Me” on Tuesday, November 21 at 10 a.m. Instructor Michi Barber from The Dance Centre will lead children and their adult partner in exploring movement that provides a body and brain workout. Little ones ages 16 months through 3 are the targeted audience for the program, but all children not yet in kindergarten are welcome. This is a free program, and no registration is required.

Story Time

Don't forget: There is no formal Story Time November 17, but stop by the puppet stage in the children’s department at 10 a.m. for an informal gathering with Miss Sandi, who will share books and stories. The library will be closed Friday, November 24, so there will be no Story Time. Story Time returns Friday, December 1 at 10 a.m.


Parents and caregivers of young children are invited to Baby TALK sessions at the library. These informal sessions geared for ages birth to 3 will be held every Wednesday in November from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. No registration required.

Drop-In Craft: Ornament Making

Kids! Drop into the library any time between 4 and 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 30, or between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday, December 2 to create an easy keepsake chalkboard ornament and a book page ornament. No registration required.

Christmas Basket Donations

The library will serve as a drop-off location for the Maroa-Forsyth Christmas Baskets, a project that brings holiday assistance to families and individuals within the Maroa-Forsyth School District. Non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys for children ages birth to teen may be dropped off at the library November 27–December 2.

November Holiday Hours

The library will be closed Thursday and Friday, November 23-24 but will resume normal hours on Saturday, November 25.

Halloween at the library

Forsyth Public Library also served as a family-friendly stop for Trick-or-Treaters who stopped by on Halloween. Children — and adults, too — were able to get warmed up on a chilly fall night by grabbing some yummy hot chocolate or cider before heading back out into the cool temps for more fun.
