Prepare to Be Scared Silly

Miss Suzanne, or Her Spirit?
 (Or Just a Blurry Photograph?)

Our favorite Youth Services Librarian, Suzanne Walker, is going to scare you out of your socks! On October 28, 2011, at Mooresville (Indiana) Pioneer Park (8:00-9:00 p.m.), join Miss Suzanne to hear some of the creepiest Halloween stories you have ever heard. These tales of terror will send chills down your spine!

This program is appropriate for grades 4 and up, along with their parents or guardians. It is NOT--repeat, NOT--suitable for younger children. We don't want any tears from tiny tots or early grade schoolers.
Join us, if you dare!  Please register online through our website calendar, or call the Library at (317) 831-7323.
Sharing Spooky Halloween Stories
In keeping with the haunted Halloween spirit(s) (just a little ghostly joke there), here's a book trailer of a true-life ghost story collection. Pretty scary!

2011 Taste of Mooresville Postponed

Bad news in today's Mooresville-Decatur Times: The 2011 Taste of Mooresville, about which I blogged earlier this month, "has been postponed until further notice due to scheduling conflicts."

The newspaper article continues:

"The Mooresville Kiwanis Club would like to thank the community for the support of this event, and we look forward to a future date for the Taste. For information concerning refunding of tickets sold, contact B.J. Pendill at 317-831-0056."

It Has Been a Great Four Years

A few days ago, this blog's readership passed 10,000 viewings.  Thanks to everybody who has made that milestone possible.  We appreciate your interest in what the Indiana Room at Mooresville Public Library (MPL) has to say.

On a personal note, yesterday marked my fourth anniversary working at MPL.  It has been a wonderful four years.  I've enjoyed it.  I hope we have served you well and will continue to do so.

I'd offer cake, but it would be of the cyber variety, which is rather dry and hard to swallow without a nice cool beverage.  Speaking of which, I'm off in search of refreshments.  Got any change for our vending machines?  All proceeds support library programs, which is a sweet deal all around.

Thanks for Following My Blog,

Bill Buckley
MPL Indiana Room Historian

Taste of Mooresville is Returning Sept. 29

The seventh annual Kiwanis International Taste of Mooresville will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on September 29, 2011 at Jones Crossing Banquet & Event Center, located on the corner of State Road 67 and Allison Road.  The event is sponsored by Franciscan/St. Francis Health.

This is a huge culinary adventure for Mooresville, Indiana.  You get to sample the cuisine of over 15 local restaurants and bid on unique auction items.   Of course, the real reason for people to attend is to help raise money for local charities, such as Churches in Mission and community youth organizations.

Advanced tickets are $15; you pay $20 at the door the day of the event, so buy yours early and save.  Tickets are available at Citizens Bank, First Merchants Bank, HomeBank, M & I Bank, and Regions Bank.

Inside Jones Crossing

You won't want to miss this taste bud treat of the season.  If you like auctions, there will be many intriguing items upon which to bid.
