Out and About in the Community

Even though I am just getting my feet wet as Head Librarian here at Winters-Bellbrook Community Library, I have been excited to be a part of two fun programs and events before they fade away into the fall months.

Adult Services Librarian Liz has been leading the Walk and Talk Book Club in the parks. This book club is a great way to connect the library and nature. Everyone reads the same book, then meets at Sweet Arrow Reserve on Little Sugarcreek Road at 6:30 p.m. Bellbrook Sugarcreek Park District Assistant Programmer Heather leads the group on a light guided hike while Liz leads the discussion of book they have read.

This group has one more meeting on October 9th, before it stops for the winter months. To join us, sign up on our website or the Bellbrook Sugarcreek Parks website, and pick up a copy of the book Killers of the Flower Moon.

The Saturday Street Fair has met once each month all summer long, and is a wonderful way for the library to connect with Bellbrook residents. Youth Services Librarian Amanda and I participated in this one last event for the year. September’s theme was A Hometown Heroes Celebration, honoring our local police and firefighters who keep us safe every day. We brought out some of our maker kits and gave away some Greene County Public Library swag.

Both events are great ways for the library to be a part of this community. We are already looking forward to participating next year!
