News release

SYRACUSE — Syracuse Public Library is hosting several activities the week of Oct. 10.

Autumn Fun With A Splash Of Apple Cider
Love fall? Don’t miss out on the Syracuse Public Library’s Family Fun Night at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11. Families will create four fun seasonal crafts during the evening, including decorative bags, apple print garlands, autumn-themed painted rocks and fall luminaries. Some crafts have limited supplies, so families should arrive on time so they don’t miss out on the craft they really wanted to do. The library will serve light snacks and hot apple cider.

While visiting the library, don’t forget to complete the fall-themed scavenger hunts or pick up a take-and-make craft. During October, there will be a new guessing jar. Guess how many candy pieces are in it. The person who comes closest will get the jar and its contents.

RPG Dice And Drama Night
Players aged 16-25 are invited to attend the first session of RPG Dice and Drama Night — SPL’s new tabletop role-playing game group from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13, in the Rosalyn Jones Room. Once gathered, group members will select the role-playing game. Some choices include “Heart: The City Beneath,” “Wanderhome,” Blades in the Dark,” “Fiasco,” “Kingdom 2e” and others. Once the setting is decided, players can dive into character creation before launching their adventure.

Young Adults Book Club
The young adult book club will read “These Deadly Games” by Diana Urban in October. In the book, Crystal Donavan completes tasks that are all a part of her sister’s kidnapper’s game. They start simple — bake brownies, steal a test, etc. — but gradually turn darker, threatening to hurt her friends. But if she refuses to play, the kidnapper will kill her sister. Pick up your copy of the book at the library to uncover what decisions Donavan makes. Digital e-books and audiobooks are available on Libby.
Discussions occur from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, and 4-5 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the Rosalyn Jones Room.

Lifelong Learning
Adults continue their lifelong learning adventures in October. The clay class will see its projects to fruition with the pit firing Wednesday, Oct. 12. Clay class participants can pick between two firings: at noon and 5 p.m. Everyone is invited to watch the pit firing process.

The Decluttering Support Group will share decluttering success stories and offer tips and tricks along the way at noon Thursday, Oct. 13. This group offers nonjudgmental support for those looking to simplify their lives by removing cluttering.

Finally, don’t forget to pick up October’s adult book club pick, “The Other Typist,” by Suzanne Rindell. This suspenseful historical fiction novel transports the reader to New York City in the 1920s. A typist for the New York City Police Department, Rose Baker sits in judgment like a high priestess. Criminals come before her to admit their transgressions, and, with a few strokes of the keys before her, she seals their fate. But while she may hear about shootings, knifings, and crimes of passion, as soon as she leaves the room, she reverts to a dignified and proper lady. Until Odalie joins the typing pool.

Discussions will occur at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, via Zoom and 1 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in the downstairs meeting room. Book copies are available at SPL. Libby also has digital e-books available. For information about the adult book club or to receive a Zoom invitation, contact Becky Brower at [email protected]
