Halloween is Tomorrow! Yikes!
Still looking for a last minute Halloween costume or some simple greusome make-up tips? Well, our very own Arra from the Lakewood Library is here to help!

Check-out the segment she did on Channel 9 on how you can use supplies you probably have in the kitchen to create some nasty scabs, warts and more!

“Fantastic!”
Dennis LehaneJCPL held our seventh annual InSight & InPerson Distinguished Author Series last night. Dennis Lehane, author of The Given DayShutter Island, Gone, Baby, Gone, Mystic River and more, was our guest.

More than 1,100 people packed Mile Hi Church to hear Lehane speak about his writing process, working with Hollywood and the importance of libraries. His lively, honest and humorous discussion was followed by an equally honest and informative question-and-answer session and book signing.

We once again had Borders as a partner, selling books by Mr. Lehane and they donated 20 percent of all proceeds to the Jefferson County Library Foundation.

Did you attend this year’s InSight & InPerson? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

If you have any other authors you’d like to see in the future, let us know!
