"Thirteen-year-old Moth Hush loves all things witchy. But she’s about to discover that witches aren’t just the stuff of movies, books, and spooky stories. When some eighth-grade bullies try to ruin her Halloween, something really strange happens. It turns out that Founder’s Bluff, Massachusetts, has a centuries-old history of witch drama. And, surprise: Moth’s family is at the center of it all! When Moth’s new powers show up, things get totally out-of-control. She meets a talking cat, falls into an enchanted diary, and unlocks a hidden witch world. Secrets surface from generations past as Moth unravels the complicated legacy at the heart of her town, her family, and herself." - Publisher Description

Wednesday, Nov 2, 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Love anime, or been wanting to get into it? Join us Wednesday evenings in November for Meadowridge Library Anime Club's Light Novel November! Every Wednesday evening, we'll celebrate by watching an episode of an anime inspired by a light novel.

This week, we'll be watching Sword Art Online. In the near future, a Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online has been released where players control their avatars with their bodies using a piece of technology called: Nerve Gear. One day, players discover they cannot log out, as the game creator is holding them captive unless they reach the 100th floor of the game's tower and defeat the final boss. However, if they die in the game, they die in real life. Their struggle for survival starts now...

This anime is appropriate for ages 13 and up.

Sowing Native Seeds Over Winter

Community Room B
Wednesday, Nov 2, 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Many native seeds must break their dormancy via a process called cold, moist stratification. If you want to improve the chances of having transplantable seedlings in the spring, join WI Master Naturalist Alex Singer to watch a brief demonstration of making a mini-greenhouse using a transparent plastic jug or other deep plastic container with lid, followed by a hands-on demonstration of the same with Q&A.

Please bring your own container if you’d like to try your hand and take it home planted with native seeds that will be available through Pinney Library's native seed library. Tools and soil will be provided, as will some additional native seeds from the presenter's own native yard.

Registration is required and begins 10/17.
