On October 27th, the Sylvan Lake Library will be hosting Sylvan Lake's first Zombie Walk. Come to the library at 3:30 to prepare for this event - we'll be roaming around the lake shore, showing off our best zombie walks, limps, snarls, and more! But watch out - there will be a Zombie Annihilation Squad poised to take out a few zombies along the way! Prizes will be given out at the end of the event, so follow us back to the library at the end of the walk! The Zombie Walk should end around 5:30 pm.
Quite a busy month!

"Every day after school Melvin goes to the library. Everything has its place in the library and Melvin likes it that way. And his favorite people—Marge, Betty, and Leola—are always in their places, behind the reference desk.
When something interests Melvin, his librarian friends help him find lots and lots of books on the subject. When he collects creepy bugs in a jar, they help him identify, classify, and catalog the insects. When he is cast as the Enormous Eggplant in the school play, Betty reads aloud from Organic Gardening to help him find his motivation. As the years pass, Melvin can always find the answers to his questions—and a lot of fun—in the library. Then one day he goes off to college to learn new things and read new books. Will he leave the library and his friends
Stay tuned for more children's events, our next Book of the Week, and Star Reader. Keep up the good reading!
