Be sure to save the date Oct. 28 when the Clef Society hosts a recital for its 2014 scholarship winner, flutist Summer Thomas, along with her accompanist Alex Sandor, in the library’s peak at 6:30 p.m. (Please note the change in date, as it was originally been scheduled for Oct. 21).

The fifth annual Library Trick-or-Treat is back and takes place on Halloween. Stop by any time between 10 a.m. to noon or 2- 4 p.m. to receive candy from your favorite “Star Wars” characters. Katelyn Baumann also hosts special story times on the same day at 10:45 and 11:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the Children’s Room.  If you plan it right, you can make it to both events.

October is Family History Month, and the library has many resources to help you discover the history of you. Ancestry Library Edition, an extension of the popular website Ancestry.com, is one such tool, providing access to censuses, vital records, immigration records, family histories, military records and more. Interested in learning about your ancestor’s immigration? Ancestry Library Edition’s passenger list collection contains information about the arrival of more than 100 million passengers at more than 100 American ports. An estimated 85 percent of Americans will find at least one ancestor in these records. All you need is a library card. You can access Ancestry.com at any computer at the Superior Public Library or our branches. Start researching your family history today!
