The C.E. Brehm Memorial Public Library in Mt. Vernon offers a variety of classes and special presentations. Below are some of their upcoming events.
The Adult Book Club will meet at 10 a.m. on November 16 to discuss the book Nickel’s Worth of Skim Milk by Robert J. Hastings. Copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk on the first floor.
Bring the whole family together with a Family Reading Night at 6 p.m. on November 16 for a new show from one of our favorite Summer Reading performers, Roz Puppets. George and the Dragon is a whimsical retelling of a classic tale set in the times of dragons and enchanted creatures. A young lad, George, will face the terrible Dragon of legend. But how fierce is this dragon? Is he really as bad as the tale would have us believe? All questions will be answered in this fun, furry, and unforgettable story. Guaranteed that all ages will enjoy the show. Family Movie Night and Game Day at the Library will be held a week earlier than normal this month.
Family Movie Night will be held on Nov. 17. Kids must be accompanied by an adult and adults must be accompanied by a kid.
