Callaway County Public Library has some exciting events happening soon.

One event scheduled is the snack and chat book discussion on Dec. 13. from noon to 1 p.m. at GoPo Gourmet Popcorn, 525 Court St. in Fulton.

The novel "The Midnight Library" by Matt Haig will be discussed. In this novel, one of the characters has a chance to see where other life choices would have taken them. They must search within themselves as they travel through the Midnight Library to decide what is truly fulfilling in life, and what makes it worth living in the first place. The book, author, and theme will be discussed.

"We do have programs planned," said Sherry McBride-Brown, Adult Services Librarian at Callaway County Public Library.

The Adult Reading program is one of the programs and will kick off in January.

Jan. 16 is the kickoff for the reading program. The focus will be on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The program is a way to get families involved in the wintertime.

There will be a volunteer fair, McBride-Brown said. It's a way to find out what the community agencies are out there.

Another program being looked at is called "The Memory Cafe" which is for families that are experiencing Alzheimer's. It will be a fun social gathering for families.

All events planned in December may be adjusted due to the library's re-carpeting project going on, she said. Although some events may have the option to view through Zoom.

Holiday Creations to Share is a time for adults to come in and relax, color, paint, and explore their creativity. This event will happen at the Callaway County Library on Dec. 13 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
