Autumn in the Air

Fall into a good series, leaf through a great book, or attend one of our awesome autumn programs - it’s Fall at EHFPL.

Summer officially ends on Friday, which makes this week the perfect time to get started on a TV DVD box set, pick up a new mystery-thriller novel, or join some new clubs. EHFPL has you covered on all 3 counts. What better way to start off Fall, than with a short trip to your local library? (Get it? Trip, Fall? Ha!)

That night was the turning-point in the season. We had gone to bed in summer, and we awoke in autumn; for summer passes into autumn in some imaginable point of time, like the turning of a leaf. - Henry David Thoreau
