The world at your fingertips.
Dear Friend

Just another day at the Library...We had dinosaurs, babies dressed as old ladies, mimes, princesses, Peter Pan, Freddy Krueger, unicorns, chickens, rabbits, pumpkins, fairies, and you name it parading through town behind a motley crew of Minecraft craft characters: the parade's fearless leaders, BHML staff Desiree Scorcia, Harolyn Hylton, and Meg Donaldson (with a little help from Officer Larry Brown!). Thanks to all the families who came out in full spirit! And thank you to all the businesses downtown who fill the parade with sweet treats! Read on to see what's in store for November...Stay warm.
