Halloween, fall festivals and programs are all around us! .  The Russellville Friends of the Library will be participating in the Russellville Fall Festival this Saturday, October 26th from 10-4 p.m.—Festival held in the park at the corner of Main and Rt. 62.   Also on Saturday we have  Matthew Carpenter’s “Cutting the Cable Cord” program at 10:30 a.m.. This popular talk will show you how to pick and choose lower cost programming as an alternative to paying the ever increasing cable bills. There are trade-offs and opportunities, so we welcome you to this free program over in the Ripley library annex.

A reminder that the Ripley Friends of the Library is trying something new this spooky holiday, Thursday, October 31st—Trunk or Treat behind the library from 6-7:30 p.m.  Kids (and kids at heart) will be able to get a hands’ on look at Ripley’s own fire truck, police car and ambulance, along with talking with firefighters, policemen and EMT paramedics.  Fun and safety all wrapped up in one location.

Amazingly, November is just ahead, and on Saturday, November 2nd from 10-4:00 p.m. the Ripley library annex will be filled with artisans from Ohio and Kentucky to bring you a unique assortment of handmade items that will amaze and delight you. Last year’s debut Holiday Market was quite a success, and we hope to surpass expectations this year. Everything from organic foods to pottery, jewelry, honey, clothing, ornaments, hand-crafted figures, cards, wood-working, and much more. See what talent and treasures are available for purchasing for yourself or a kick-start to the holiday rush.
