November at The Brookfield Library: Festive Flutes, Holiday Boutique, Furry Friends, and More!

The Brookfield Library is celebrating the season with some wonderful programs during the month of November!

Create festive flutes to kick off your holiday season on November 3. Join us on November 4 for The British Invasion to learn about this dynamic period in our country’s musical history.

Kids are off from school on Election Day, but all ages should stop by for our Furry and Scaly Animal Friends program on November 7, and then cast a vote for their favorite critter. Celebrate November with a special storytime on November 18.

This month, The Art Gallery welcomes the artwork of Lauren Sanders in Interior Forests, showcasing unique creations that evoke the beauty of nature. Speaking of nature, are you a nature lover? Teens and adults can learn about Mushroom Identification for Beginners on November 11.

Did you know that November is National Novel Writing Month? Get started on yours at the Library at our Start Your Novel program on November 6th, for ages 11 and up. Teens and parents will not want to miss the opportunity to learn about The New Digital SAT on November 14.

In addition to our fall storytimes, kids can join our seasonally-themed STEAMWall Hanging CraftBuilders, and Science Explorers activities, as well as an in-person Food Explorers event to make mini-gingerbread cheesecakes.

Get a jump on your holiday shopping and buy local at the Friends of the Brookfield Library Annual Holiday Boutique in our Community Room on November 18.

Attention regional history buffs! We have a great new service: a searchable, digitized database of the Brookfield Journal and the Housatonic Times.

Please see our website for details regarding dates, times, and registration details for all of the exciting programs listed above, along with our regular storytimes, book clubs, craft programs, and career skills workshops offered in November.

Don’t forget: as with other town offices, the Library will be closed on Friday, November 10 in honor of Veterans’ Day, as well as Thursday and Friday, November 23 and 24, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
