Any teens interested in watching, what I assume will be creepy as all get-out, The Midnight Club, the new Netflix series based on Christopher Pike’s novel of the same name? We’ll be using kast, an online viewing platform, where we can chat while watching the show.

Do you think bears are cute? We do! From a distance, at least, or more specifically, a webcam!

This year, you will see all ages activities at the library centered around Fat Bear Week, an effort to educate and have fun watching the bears who are getting fat for the winter. It is organized by Katmai National Park in Alaska.

"Held over the course of seven days and concluding on Fat Bear Tuesday, people choose which bear to crown [the fattest] in this March Madness style bracket where bears are pitted against each other for your vote."

Mark your calendar for October 5-11, and make this a family event! Learn more here: nps.gov/katm/learn/fat-bear-week.htm

p.s. We`re so excited, so we have a display, and we`re starting our own voting in the Children`s Department starting today, Monday, September 19!
