With September knocking on our door, the column I wrote for this week's community Eagle Newsonline and Star Review newspaper tackled the programs set up for the next two months by our LPL programming staff.

You can read it on Eagle Newsonline here.

You can also read the column below:

Old friends will return and new faces will be welcomed as a new programming season comes knocking on the Liverpool Public Library’s doors.

The community can find familiar favorites back to the LPL as they flip through the pages of the programming guide for September and October. And to celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month, everybody age 5 and up who signs up for an LPL card throughout September by stopping at the Information @ LPL Desk or going to our library card sign up page will be eligible to win a prize in our drawing.

Popular guests coming back to the LPL include:

UFO experts and writers Cheryl and Linda Costa will host UFOs in the US: The Big Picture at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 9, in the Carman Community Room. The pair who wrote UFO Sightings Desk Reference: United States of America 2001-2020 will talk about statistics, maps and more on a topic that keeps getting hotter in the news.
