Off the Shelf: Fall Fun at the Library!

Contest Announcement

Fall in Essex County is so beautiful! The leaves are changing colours, pumpkins and chrysanthemums decorate porches and front yards and there is a nip in the air. To celebrate we’re running a Fall Bucket List Giveaway.

Do one or more of the activities on our bucket list, take a photo and send it to us at: and you’ll receive an online ballot to fill out. We’ll draw 10 winners who will each receive one $30 gift certificate to a local business. Doesn’t need to be professional, just have fun! Contest closes Saturday, October 17 at midnight.

Fall Programs and Events

At this time, we are still unable to provide programming in person. We’ll be having fun with recorded programs as we did in the summer along with a few live events! You can find currently scheduled programs on our events calendar. Highlights include:

DIY Dryer Vent Pumpkins

Exploring Local History

Spooky Science

Tales of Terror Told in the Dark!

These will be presented on Facebook and YouTube.

Fun and Games

Are you a fan of trivia? Like a timed challenge on a variety of topics? Then you’ll love our Tuesday Night Trivia! Every Tuesday from 6 pm to 12 am play our game then check back the next day to find out where you placed.

Lunchtime Puzzlers is a popular new game just launched a few weeks ago. Every Thursday, we share a different timed online jigsaw puzzle. A great activity to break up your day and test those brain cells.

Next Week: They’re here: native seed plants ready for planting now!
