I know that every librarian checks a copy of Chases Calendar of Events, but just in case these have slipped your mind, here are a few dates that are coming soon:

  • October 4-10—World Space Week The U.S. in under-represented in the celebration of this commemorative week, but any excuse to promote space is a good one in my book!

  • October 8-14—Fire Prevention Week Enlist the help of your local fire department to obtain materials or a visit from Sparky, the fire dog to your school or library.  Anything we can do to avoid a preventable tragedy is worth doing. 
Of course, don't forget that it's Library Card Sign-Up Month


This is by no means an exhaustive list - just what happens to be on my radar. 
Feel free to add anything I may have missed.
