September comes once again to the library and with it events for all ages.

On Tuesday at 4:15 pm we are having Storytimes: the 13th will be about Family, the 20th about Farm Animals, and the 27th about Apples. Come read a story and do a craft with us. If you can’t make it on Tuesdays, Storytime packs will be available all week!

On Wednesdays we will have our Teen Programs. Come by for popcorn and stay for board games on the 14th, an Escape Room on the 21st, and Beginner Sewing on the 28th.

Last but not least the Adult events for the month include Book Discussion: Meet Someone New: Read a Biography on the 15th and a Craft: Recycled CD coasters on the 22nd.

Also come by to see our September book displays: Back to School and Alphabet for Kids. For Adults, Meet Someone New: Read a Biography in coordination with the book discussion on September 15th.

September is also Library Card Sign-Up month. If you haven’t been to the library, lost your card, just moved into the area, etc., come by and get a library card. There will be a prize drawing for checking out an item or getting a library card this month.

The Greene County Reads was on this past Friday, Sept. 9. The book discussion was about the book: “The Butterfly Effect” by Rachel Mans McKenny. The author was there as well as Jan Scharingson as discussion leader. Rippey had 15 in attendance, and it was a great discussion. The event was held at three of the six Greene County libraries that day with the Rippey library from 12:30 to 2 pm. This program was funded by the Greene County board of supervisors and the Greene County Library Association.

The Rippey Library has upgraded its catalog this month. You can access this new catalog on our website and then by clicking the catalog button on the main page. One of the biggest improvements of this upgrade is that you can look up and reserve items online. Be sure to check that out.

Special Sunday afternoon visit

Sunday, September 11, Toni Roberts traveled to Boone to visit her son and daughter-in-law, Matt and Sara Roberts. They had celebrated their second anniversary on September 7, so Toni made a favorite casserole to share. It was a nice day for a drive and to spend the afternoon with Matt and Sara.
