Graves County Library November Programs
By WestKyStar & Graves County Library Staff
MAYFIELD, KY - Programs for November at the Graves County Public Library will include the following:

In conjunction with the Mayfield Animal Shelter, the library will host a special program called Paws to Read. It will be the first Thursday of each month at 4 pm and will allow children to read aloud to a therapy dog or cat for 15 minutes. Patient, nonjudgmental pets help reluctant readers gain confidence and comfort with reading. Parents will need to fill out and sign a waiver before their child can participate. This program is open to children in grades K-6. 

The library has two special programs throughout the school year. The Lego Program will be the first Monday of every month at 5 pm and daughter date night will be the first Tuesday of each month at 5 pm. During Lego night children can come and create anything from their imagination and during daughter date night you can come with your child and make a craft to take home together.
The library is offering Food for Fines. Bring food donations to the library during the months of November and December. You will get $1 in current fines waived for each can or package of the following foods: peanut butter, canned chicken or tuna, canned vegetables, soups, or fruit, boxed meals, cereal, pasta, toilet paper or paper towels. This applies to fines only and will not apply to replacement costs of items which have been lost or damaged. Donated items will be given to the Food Pantry in Mayfield. 

On Saturday, Nov. 4th at 2 pm, Bright Star Touring Theatre, a national professional touring company based in Asheville, NC, is visiting the library with their production of Dreaming of America. From the earliest settlers of Jamestown and the pilgrims of Massachusetts to those who come to America to find a better life in modern times, this story explores what it means to be a stranger in a new land. It is best appreciated by audiences in grades 3 through adult. If you have any additional questions, contact the library at 270-247-2911.
The library will host family movie night on Tuesday, Nov. 14th at 5 pm. The movie this month is Wonder Woman.
