This year, we’ve got some exciting additions to our autumn lineup that are sure to make your October even more special!

Embrace the Spirit of Fall with Six Mile Regional Library District’s New Color-Changing LED Lights:

Throughout October, the Six Mile Regional Library District has a host of exciting events and programs lined up for all ages. From spooky storytimes for kids to book club discussions for adults, there’s something for everyone to enjoy this fall.

Spooky Reads for All Ages:

October is a magical month for book lovers. With Halloween just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to dive into some spine-tingling tales. Whether you prefer classic ghost stories or contemporary psychological thrillers, you’ll find something to keep you up at night right here on our shelves.

Don’t have time to stop by the library, did you know you can Stream Movies, Music, eBooks, eAudiobooks, eComics, & eMagazines on your device with your library card?

Seasonal Movies to Check Out on DVD and Blu-ray:

As the temperatures drop and the days grow shorter, there’s nothing quite like cozying up with a great movie. At Six Mile Regional Library District, we’ve curated a special selection of seasonal films perfect for enjoying the fall atmosphere.

From heartwarming autumn tales to classic Halloween flicks, there’s something for every taste. Don’t miss the chance to revisit beloved classics like “Hocus Pocus” or “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” If you’re in the mood for a newer release, explore our collection of recent films that capture the essence of the season.

These movies are not only great entertainment but also a fantastic way to get into the spirit of October and the upcoming holidays. So grab some popcorn, your favorite cozy blanket, and a DVD or Blu-ray from the library, and create your own cinematic fall experience.

Join Us for the Library Crawl:

We’re excited to be part of the Library Crawl again this year! This event runs the entire month of October and includes 158 libraries across IHLS. It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore the rich literary landscape of our region.

For SMRLD customers who wish to participate in the crawl, passports will be available at each customer service desk. Participants must visit 5 libraries to be entered into a drawing for a $25 QT gift card. The passports must be turned in by November 2nd, with the winner drawn on the afternoon of Monday, November 3rd.

Customers from other libraries will be stopping by all month. When they visit SMRLD not only will they get a stamp in their passport, they may also choose a piece of candy and a wooden nickel as a treat for stopping by. Want to fill up you passport? Each SMRLD location, 2001 Delmar Ave and 2145 Johnson Rd is a different stop.
