The crafters are coming, the crafters are coming! The Friends of the Library has decided to restart the once popular Crafter’s Nights at the library. Planning to meet once every other month, this group gathers to learn new skills, share advice and take a little time to spend on that hobby that never seems to get enough attention. Anyone with an idea or skill they would like to share with other crafters should contact the library. There are whispers of a soap-making workshop in October and maybe a knitting group as well! Keep checking the website and future press for dates and times as they are available.

Miss Tracie’s costume closet opens October 1st. With dozens of children’s costumes donated by local families, there’s bound to be something an undecided goblin might want to wear. The vast majority of costumes are preschool-sized, though there are many infant and toddler costumes, and a growing number of school age sizes as well. All that is required is a valid Harvey Mitchell Memorial Library card to borrow a costume for the entire Halloween “season”. Additional donations of gently used (or new) costumes will be accepted throughout October.

The Library Trustees have begun the process of expanding the library! Having been in the present building since 1964 it is time to grow in an attempt to keep up with the growth in Epping over recent decades. Library patrons and interested residents are invited to meet the Trustees and discuss the potential for Epping’s little library at an Open House on Tuesday, October 4th from 6:00 to 8:00. Refreshments will be served. Come be a part of an exciting new chapter!

Also in October: PJ Movie Night Friday, October 14th at 6:30 featuring the latest from Disney about those adorable talking canine ‘buddies’, and the Annual Halloween Party on Friday, October 28th from 5:30 to 7:30.

Epping’s public library is open Monday – Friday from 10 am to 8 pm and Saturday 10 to 2. For more information call 679-5944, or visit
