CRYSTAL FALLS — The Crystal Falls District Community Library will host three events this week.
    On Thursday, Nov. 19, the library will participate in the Great American Smokeout, which is held annually on the third Thursday of November. The Smokeout is in its 19th year.    
    Kelly Rumpf, health educator with the Dickinson-Iron District Health Department, has prepared several pamphlets and brochures about the dangers of smoking and vaping that will be available at the library on Nov. 19.  
“Although many people may know the side effects of smoking, there is much to be learned about how vaping affects teens and adults,” CFDL Director Evelyn Gathu said. “We encourage everyone to come to the library on Thursday to pick up some literature to learn more, especially parents and grandparents of teenagers.”
On Friday, Nov. 20, the library will hold its annual Amnesty Day.
Any patrons that currently have a fine at the library can come to the circulation desk anytime from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and ask to have their fines forgiven. The fines will not be removed automatically; a physical visit or phone call to the library at 875-3344 on Friday is requested.
On Saturday, Nov. 21, the library will host Thanksgiving Story Hours. Gathu said that due to the current restrictions on gathering size, the library will limit story hours to four children at a time to allow for social distancing. Masks will be required.  
“Children will get to listen to some thoughtful and funny Thanksgiving stories along with making their very own turkey bowling set which they can play with their families on Thanksgiving,” Gathu said.  
Children will also get to take home a Thanksgiving book to keep for their home library.  
For those interested in having their child/children attend a Thanksgiving story hour, call 875-3344, or email to reserve a space.  
“We ask that only one parent accompanies the child/children to the event. Thank for understanding our necessary precautions, and we hope that you can join us at the library on Saturday morning.”
