Story time this week at the Blaine County Library featured a local Beekeeper.

If you missed the first two meetings of our book club, Free People Reading Freely, there is still time to stop in and choose a book to read for before the next meeting! We have multiple copies of the Top 10 Most Challenged or Banned Book in 2017. The next meeting will be Monday December 3rd at 7:00 p.m. in the library. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The movie today will be "The Adventures of Huck Finn" at 1:00 p.m. in the library meeting room. The movie is rated PG and it runs for one hour and 48 minutes. Everyone is welcome to attend and refreshments will be served. "The Post" will be the movie next Wednesday. If anyone has a request for a movie, just let us know and we will do our best to show it. You can also let Marlene at the Senior Center know what you'd like to see.

The Library will be closed Thursday November 21st in observance of Thanksgiving. We will be open regular hours from 12:00 to 5:00 Friday November 23rd. We will be showing the movie "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" on Friday November 23rd at 1:00 and 4:00 in the library meeting room. This is the original animated version and runs for 26 minutes. The Ecumenical Bell Choir will be performing from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.

We have one non-fiction book ready for checkout this week. "Brief Answers to the Big Questions" is a brilliant last message to the world from cosmologist Stephen Hawking. Hawking not only unraveled some of the universe's greatest mysteries but also believed science plays a critical role in fixing problems here on Earth. Now, as we face immense challenges on our planet-including climate change, the threat of nuclear war, and the development of artificial intelligence-he turns his attention to the most urgent issues facing us. Will humanity survive? Should we colonize space? Does God exist? These are just a few of the questions Hawking addresses in this wide-ranging, passionately argued final book from one of the greatest minds in history.

"Wait for Me" by Susan May Warren is book six in the Montana rescue series. In "Past Tense" by Lee Child Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn't get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What's one extra day? He takes the detour. At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they're stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It's a strange place, but it's all there is. The next morning, in the city clerk's office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He's told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He's always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place? As Reacher explores his father's life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly. "When We Were Young" by Karen Kingsbury is a Baxter Family novel. Liane Moriarty, bestselling author of "Big Little Lies" brings us another page turner with "Nine Perfect Strangers." Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can't even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work. But none of them could imagine just how challenging the next ten days are going to be.
