Fall To-Do List: Create & Make, World Cup Soccer, Holiday Shopping & Self-Care

Posted on October 18, 2022 at 6:00 am

Fall to-do list: notepad and pencil with cup of tea

See the ways you can create, make, and practice self-care in November with the library. Try out Pilates, a new puzzle or board game, or create a container of spring bulbs for winter enjoyment.

You can drop into The Studio at Spokane Valley Library to learn about the available audio-visual recording equipment and software and sign up for a video lighting workshop. The Lab at North Spokane Library offers Maker Open Hours so you can stop by and see the technology available, and you can sign up for a workshop to create laser-cut holiday ornaments.

Holiday shopping season is quickly approaching. Add our Small Business Saturday weeklong events to your list and enter for a chance to win a prize sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

World Cup soccer matches start November 21. Attend a World Cup viewing party, sign up for Ted Lasso trivia, and take on an all-ages World Cup reading challenge. Make these programs your GOAL!

Our Spanish-language programs include a book club to discuss the celebrated novel The House on Mango Street (La casa en Mango Street), by Sandra Cisneros, and an online cooking class spotlighting the delicious flavors of Latin America.

Learn more about upcoming author talks, a business workshop on pricing and sales, and information sessions about memory loss and dementia, Medicare, health care and retirement in the news post: Helpful & Informative: Author Talks, Memory Care, Medicare, Retirement & Small Business Strategies.
