Happening at the Library...

The Computer Tutor has returned - Carolyn, the computer tutor, is available again for all your tech questions every Tuesday from 1 pm - 5 pm.  Appointments are necessary, please call ahead to schedule a session.  Each session is a 1/2 hour, individual consultation.   Welcome back Carolyn!

Anime Club - Teens and tweens welcome on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month for snacks, projects, friends, and watching anime.  This month's meetings will be October 8th and the 22nd, 4pm .

Penny Auction - Come to the Swissvale Library on Friday, October 18 at 7:00pm and bring lots of pennies. This is the only currency accepted at the annual Penny Auction (although donations are also welcome).  Where else can you buy really interesting stuff (e.g., games, original artwork, baked goods, kitchen items) for only pennies?  You never know what you'll find. Bargain hunters, get your Christmas shopping done early!

Music at the Library - Saturday, October 26, 1:30 - 3:00 join Music at the Library for a musical tour of Latin America!  The group, Bésame, will be the entertainment. They specialize in music from all over the region, with emphasis on the amazing sounds of Colombia. Brought together by musical chance, Bésame combines the talents of Jorge Delgado (guitar/vocals), Paul Cindric (soprano sax/vocals), Melissa Alliston (percussion/vocals), Roger Day (tuba/vocals) and Phil Vasquez (percussion) to bring you a surprising variety of Latin styles and rhythms - no standard salsa/merengue from this crew!

Congratulations to the Chili Cook-off winners!

The first annual Chili Cook-off was a whopping success as we had 12 delicious entries from which to choose the winners. Bonnie Egli (left) took first place in the "Most Unusual Chili" category with her own Fruit Chili recipe.  Lee Willard (center) took the prize for the "Spiciest Chili" with her India/Mex recipe.  Victoria Pitts (right), with her Chili Corn-Corney recipe, and Lee Willard, tied for "Most Satisfying Chili".  Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated.  Can't wait to do this again next year.
