Enjoy making your own caramel apple with all the fixings then settle down to watch ‘It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown’.

Registration is required for this special event as well as supplying one apple topping to share (per family). This is a family event--please register all participants including adults. Children may not be left to attend on their own. Suggested toppings for you to bring include, but are not limited to, the following ideas: chopped nuts, mini chocolate chips, crushed Oreos, honey roasted peanuts, pretzel pieces, or chopped Butterfingers. Be creative and come up with a new one to add to the list!

The Affordable Care Act enrollment period began on October 1. Do you have any questions such as: What does it mean for you and your family? If yes, we have just the event for you.

Join us on Wed., November 6, from 6:30–8:00 p.m. when a representative from AARP will do a presentation on the ACA and how it affects citizens of all ages. The speaker will highlight some of the key elements of the law related to insurance coverage, timelines for enrollment, and facts on how sign up through the Health Insurance Marketplace. The presentation will end with a 30-minute Q&A session and participants will walk away with a handout of helpful resources. Space is limited to Atkinson residents and seating is limited, so don’t delay and sign up soon.

The story hour enrollment period expands and continues! Due to the popularity of our preschool classes, we are adding an additional ‘Kiddie Lit’ class to the mix on Friday mornings at 11:30 a.m. The first available session started on October 11. Crafts, music, rhyme, new friends and adventures into literacy will be found during these classes geared for children ages 3-6.
