Saturday, October 7, 10:30 - noon, in the Main Library Community Room. Barbara Beaseley Murphy will read from Miguel Lost and Found at the Palace. "Listen to the words, you'll get to know everything..." she says. About what? About the bullies, and the Palace of the Governors, the Fiesta Princess who kisses Miguel, about being from Mexico and being a kid in Santa Fe. Get a chance on a free book to take home with you so you'll have the whole story!!

Sunday October 8, 2:00 in the Main Library Community Room. The Spelling Bee is coming back! The Friends of the Library board is extra busy this year, so CommodiCast has volunteered to sponsor the 4th Annual Adult Spelling Bee. (It's written, not oral.) First prize is $200 from CommodiCast. Entry fee is $10 (tax-deductible). Proceeds benefit the Friends of the Library. Download the flyer and application form.

Monday, October 9th. The libraries will be closed in observance of Columbus Day. (The library's calendar of holiday closings is always available on our website.)

Wednesday, October 18, at 7 PM in the Community Room at the Main Library, "Would You Like To Meet the Devil, Bogeyman, or La Llorona? Dr. Nasario García will present tales of buried treasures, the devil, the evil eye, the bogeyman, and natural phenomena which were once the keystone of family entertainment in Hispanic villages of northern New Mexico. Loosely gathered under the category of witchcraft, these stories command curiosity and fascination. Everyone, from the very young to mature adults, likes to be spooked. Free. All ages welcome.

This program is made possibly by the New Mexico Humanities Council, the New Mexico Dept of Cultural Affairs, and the Friends of the Santa Fe Public Library.
