Adult Book Club

Adult Book Club meets on the third Thursday of the month. All are welcome. If you’d like to join us on October 19th, let me know so I can get you a copy of “The Last Midwife“, which is our October selection.

It is 1880 and Gracy Brookens is the only midwife in a small Colorado mining town, where she has delivered hundreds, maybe thousands, of babies in her lifetime. The women of Swandyke trust and depend on Gracy, and most couldn’t imagine getting through pregnancy and labor without her by their sides.

But everything changes when a baby is found dead…and the evidence points to Gracy as the murderer.

Halloween Story Time

Kirkland Public Library will have a Halloween story time on Saturday, October 28th at 10:30 a.m.

Mrs. Holtapp will be reading some of her favorite stories.  Be sure and join us for a fun time!

 

 

Drop Box

Please remember the drop box is to be used only if the library is not open.  We only check it first thing when we open and it is not rechecked again until the next time we open.  Your book could sit in the box and not be checked in on time.  If we are open, please return it inside so that a fine does not accumulate.  Also, remember DVDs, audio books, and books borrowed from other libraries may not be put in the drop box — they must all be returned inside and are subject to a fine if deposited in the box.  Also, do not leave anything between the doors.

DROP BOX WILL BE LOCKED OUT OVER ALL HOLIDAYS —

We lock our drop box over all holidays as we’ve had trash thrown in and books damaged.  Please remember this and return your items either before or after the holiday.  Do not leave anything between the doors or you will be responsible for damaged and/or lost items.

Gifts and Memorials

Looking to honor a friend, remember a loved one or celebrate a special occasion? Supporting the Kirkland Public Library through a monetary donation furthers the library’s mission to share the joy of reading, discovery and creativity with the community. Your gift also allows us to honor or memorialize someone special to you.

Monetary donations may be dropped off at the library during regular business hours or mailed to us at PO Box 189, Kirkland, IL 60146.

Adult Cookbook Club

Let’s Get Cooking!

On Thursday, October 5th at 6:30 p.m., the Kirkland Public Library will have the next meeting of the Adult Cookbook Club.

The idea is to critique the cookbook, not each other’s cooking.  The theme for the meeting is “harvest”.  Cookbooks have been borrowed from other libraries so that we will have a variety of books to give our opinion on.  Each person will check out a book, make at least one recipe from the book and share their thoughts about the book with the group.   If members want to, samples of their chosen recipe may be brought that evening so we can all enjoy.

The Adult Cookbook Club will usually meet on the first Thursday of the month at 6:30 p.m.; however, unlike our other book club, we will only meet every two months.  If you’d like to join in on the fun, please register with one of our librarians.

Family Pets

Please remember that family pets are not allowed in the library. Yes, you’re right – we did have Banjo with us; however, she was being trained to become a leader dog. As with any other public place, a service dog is certainly welcome to be in the library with the person they are assisting.
