October is a busy month here at the Forest Park Public Library, as it seems to be everywhere. As always, we strive to offer programs and services that will suit your needs. Here’s a sampling of what’s happening at the library:

Youth Services

Friday Oct. 13 at 4 p.m.: Celebrate the release of Lemony Snicket’s 13th book “A Very Unfortunate Gathering.” Games, trivia, and food of the most dismal varieties included.

Tuesday Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m.: Stop in after trick-or-treating for spooky stories and a candy swap. And don’t forget that Homework Help is in full swing, every Monday through Thursday, from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Adult Services

Know Your Rights: Employment Law Workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. Hear the latest about labor laws from representatives of the Illinois Department of Labor. Call the library’s reference desk to sign up.

Around the World in 60 Minutes on Sunday, Oct. 22 at 2 p.m. Come see photos and artifacts from religious sites around the world, presented by Mr. Bill Helmuth, who has traveled extensively around the world. This presentation has been seen and enjoyed by audiences all over the Chicago area.

If you haven’t seen a copy of the September/October Forest Park Post, pick one up and check for the library survey on page 33. We’d love your feedback, so just complete the survey and drop it in the boxes available at the Howard Mohr Community Center, village hall, or leave it with us here at the library.

The Friends of the Library are gearing up for the semiannual used book sale the weekend of Nov. 10 to the 12. Mark your calendar and plan to arrive early for great deals.

As always, we urge you to come in and register for a library card if you don’t have one already. Check in to our web site at http://www.forestparkpubliclibrary.org, and see how much you can do with your card, even when you aren’t in the building.
