As the spooky holiday approaches, the Alliance Public Library has lots of fun adult events planned:

-On Wednesday, Oct. 26th at 2pm, in the new Community Room, Fiber Arts Club returns! Bring your own fiber arts project (knitting, crochet, embroidery, etc.) and join us for a casual meet-up to have some fun with your fellow crafters!

-On Thursday, Oct. 27th at 6pm, B.Y.O.B. Club will meet in the community room. Unlike most book clubs where everyone reads the same thing, at Bring Your Own Book club you choose what you’d like to read. Every month, we will meet in person or online and discuss the books that you are obsessed with, liked, or didn’t much care for. There’s a little something for everyone at the B.Y.O.B. Club. Keep watching our Facebook, and Instagram pages for more details and to see what we are reading.

-On Thursday, Nov. 3rd at 6pm, come create some Macramé Christmas Ornaments will us in the community room. The cost of the class is $10, and adult patrons 18 and older are welcomed to attend. Call 308.762.1387 to sign up or stop by the circulation desk.

Staff Picks - Alliance Public Library

Are you looking for some new book suggestions? Check out the Staff Picks page on our website for the latest recommendations from the Library Staff☺️

Staff Picks - Alliance Public Library Stephanie recommends Fairy Tale, the latest book by legendary author Stephen King. Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was ten, and grief drove his dad....
