FALL FESTIVAL SCARECROW
BUILDING CONTEST

Village of Stickney Fall Festival
Saturday, Sept. 10th
 
It's almost time for the Village of Stickney's Fall Festival and that means it's almost time for the Stickney-Forest View Public Library's Scarecrow Building Contest. But to do that we need your help. We need old clothes...lots of old clothes. Old pants, old shirts, old hats and scarves. If a scarecrow can wear it, we need it. It's ok if it has rips, tears, or stains. Please drop off your donation of old clothes at the Circulation Desk or the Reference Desk. We'll see you at the fest!
 
 


FANTASY FOOTBALL LEAGUE
Tentative Draft Date
Thursday, Sep. 1st, 7 p.m.
 
We've had some patrons ask about a library fantasy football league for the upcoming season. We are looking into putting something together, but we would need some help. If you have experience organizing or even participating in a fantasy sports league, please call 749-1050, x-120 or email us at reference@sfvpld.org. The season starts Sep. 8th, so I'm guessing we would need to organize a draft event no later than Saturday, Sep. 3rd. We have tentatively scheduled a draft for Thursday, Sep. 1st, but we can change that if enough people are interested. Thanks for your help.

You can also register for the event using our online calendar here.

BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961)
Saturday, September 10th, 2pm

Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) is a charming socialite with a youthful zest for life who lives alone in a nearly bare apartment in New York City during the early '60s. Maintaining a childlike innocence yet wearing the most perfect of designer clothes and accessories, she spends her time on expensive dates and at high-class parties. Holly's carefree independence is changed, however, when she meets her neighbor, aspiring writer Paul (George Peppard).

Enjoy some popcorn and a movie the second Saturday of every month at the library!
