"It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty. But there's something about the sensation of ink on paper that is in some sense a thing, a phenomenon rather than an epiphenomenon. I can't break the association of electric trash with the computer screen. Words on the screen give the sense of being just another passing electronic wriggle."

—John Hoyer Updike (b. 1932) American writer, Rabbit, Run, Rabbit at Rest

Halloween Costume Swap & Shop

The Jerseyville Public Library will once again be holding a Costume Swap & Shop.  Swapping costumes is a great way to save money and be "green" at the same time. To participate, bring in a gently used--costumes must be in good to excellent condition--costume to the circulation desk from September 30-October 5, 2013, during normal business hours.  For each costume you bring, you will receive 1 voucher to use on Monday, October 7 from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m.  If you don't have a costume, you can shop for $5.00/costume on the same day, October 7th, from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.  There will be lots of brand new accessories and decorations available, too!

All proceeds will benefit the Library Expansion Project.  Refreshments and face painting will be available from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.  Call 618.498.9514 for more information.
