It's hard to believe, but Fall will soon be here and Story Hour and TASC tutoring will both resume in the next few weeks. When winter weather arrives, listen for school closings. If Hancock County schools are closed, that means that Story Hour and TASC tutoring will also be cancelled.

Group tutoring sessions will begin September 9th to prepare students for the TASC high school equivalency exam. In WV, the TASC replaced the GED last year. Sessions are held from 10-12 on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and after September 23rd, also from 12-2. Please contact the library's Literacy Coordinator, Pam Makricosta, at 797-8510 between noon and 8:00 Monday through Thursday or on Friday from 9:00-5:00 for more information.

On Thursday, August 21st at 3 p.m., we will be thrilled to welcome Stevens Puppets back to the library for a presentation of The Wizard of Oz. This nationally known touring company was founded in 1933, and has been entertaining audiences ever since. Both children and adults were captivated by their performances of Beauty and the Beast and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow which we hosted last year. Below are some pictures from one of those performances.

Fall is fast approaching and with it comes November elections. If you have not yet registered to vote, the forms are available in the library or on the West Virginia Secretary of State's website. The forms must be mailed in to the County Clerk three weeks before the election. Registrations must be postmarked no later than October 14. Residents of Hancock County should send their forms to Eleanor Straight at P.O. Box 367, New Cumberland, WV. 26047 Residents of Brooke County should send their forms to Sylvia J. Benzo at 632 Main Street, Wellsburg, WV 26070. This election is particularly important to the library as the Hancock County Library Levy that provides a significant portion of our budget will be on the ballot. This is not a new levy and has not been increased. In West Virginia, library levies must pass by at least 60%.
