A Librarian’s Guide to Enjoying Fall

by Nancy M

Fall is officially here and while the crisp weather hasn’t quite hit us yet, the days are getting shorter and the leaves are showing a hint of color, which is enough to convince me that summer really is over and all is right with the world. I don’t need much to put me in a fall kind of mood, but if you and your kids are looking to get in the spirit without hauling yourselves to an apple orchard or pumpkin patch, why not stop by the Library and pick up a book? Here are some of my favorite fall (and Halloween) picture books (click on the picture to take you to the catalog listing):








There are plenty of fun, fall-festive programs for kids at your local Library. Listen to Ghost Stories with Sherry Norfolk at the Dunwoody Library, learn about Bats! Creatures of the Night at the Gresham Library, or attend Stone Mountain Library’s Preschool Fall Festival. For more information and a complete list of fall programs, click here.

My littlest one adores The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything so we highly recommend that one as well. (I think she fancies herself the little old lady when she insists on walking up the stairs at night in the pitch black, making ghost noises).
