Siloam Springs Herald Leader - - NEWS - Li­brary Mus­ings By Dolores Deuel Siloam Springs Pub­lic Li­brary

In com­mem­o­ra­tion of Na­tional Amer­i­can In­dian Her­itage Month, which is in Novem­ber, Danc­ing Ea­gles will be per­form­ing at the Siloam Springs Pub­lic Li­brary Meet­ing Room (205 East Jef­fer­son, Siloam Springs, Ark.) at 10 a.m. Satur­day, Nov. 4. Mike Pah­se­topah is a renowned Na­tive Amer­i­can cul­tural ed­u­ca­tor, pre­sen­ter, sto­ry­teller, en­ter­tainer, ac­tor and World Cham­pion Fancy Dancer. He has trav­eled through­out the United States shar­ing who he is as an Osage, Euchee and Creek First Na­tion Peo­ples through song, dance and sto­ry­telling. Come and join us at the li­brary for this unique and spe­cial event.

As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, take ad­van­tage of the li­brary as a place to un­wind. We have a puz­zle out on one of the back ta­bles, board games are avail­able in the young adult area, and read­ing rooms are avail­able for soli­tary study or small group study and dis­cus­sion.

L.D. Ryan will be pre­sent­ing an au­thor talk at 5:30 p.m. Thurs­day, Nov. 9. Books will be avail­able and L.D. will be sign­ing books. He wrote “War and Women: Find­ing God and a Wife.” This fic­tional ac­count tells of an Army Ranger who was in Afghanistan fight­ing and the three women who were vy­ing for his love. Two were un­faith­ful and one waited for him. Due to a mir­a­cle in a fire­fight, the Ranger be­comes a Chris­tian and is united with the one woman who was also a Chris­tian. To­gether, they be­come mis­sion­ar­ies to his for­mer en­e­mies.

T.R.O.L.L.S. (Teens Read­ing Ob­vi­ously Like­able Lit. on Satur­day) will be meet­ing at 11 a.m. Satur­day, Nov. 11, to dis­cuss Neil Gaiman’s book “The Grave­yard Book.” Gaiman in­tro­duces us to Bod, who is an un­usual boy who in­hab­its an un­usual place — he’s the only liv­ing res­i­dent of a grave­yard. He was raised from in­fancy by the ghosts, were­wolves and other ceme­tery denizens. Can a boy raised by ghosts face the won­ders and ter­rors of the worlds of both the liv­ing and the dead? Join us as we have a lively dis­cus­sion about Bod and how he trans­verses two worlds.

The li­brary will be closed Fri­day, Nov. 10, in honor of Veter­ans Day. We will be clos­ing at 5 p.m. Wed­nes­day, Nov. 22, and will be closed Thurs­day, Nov. 23, and Fri­day, Nov. 24, for Thanks­giv­ing. There will be no preschool pro­gram Wed­nes­day, Nov. 22.
