Help the Pierce County Food Pantry in November! Food for Fines will be held November 1-30. The Heart of America Library will remove overdue fines for patrons if they bring in a non-perishable food item that has not expired, packaging is not damaged and has not been opened. A can or box of food equals one fine waived, and cannot be used for books that are lost, damaged or need to be replaced. All food items will be donated to the Pierce County Food Pantry. Everyone is welcome to donate items even if they do not have fines.
The Board of Trustees of the Heart of America Library will hold their next meeting on Monday, November 14 at 9 AM in the West Room of the Heart of America Library.
The next story hour will be Friday, November 18 from 10:15 to 11:15 AM. All children 5 and under are welcome! We do ask that children 3 or under be attended by an adult.

New in Biography is “Diana, William, and Harry” by New York Times best selling author James Patterson & Chris Mooney. The description reads, “From the moments William and Harry are born into the House of Windsor, they become their young mother’s whole world. I’ve got two very healthy, strong boys. I realize how incredibly lucky I am, Diana reminds herself every morning. But even the Princess of Wales questions, Am I a good mother? Diana’s faced with a seemingly impossible challenge: one son destined to be King of England and another determined to find his own way. She teaches them to honor royal tradition, even while daring to break it. “Sometimes I’d like a time machine…” Diana says as William and Harry grow up, never imagining they’d have less than a lifetime together. Even after she’s gone, her sons follow their mother’s lead—and her heart. As the years pass and William and Harry grow into adulthood and form families of their own, they carry on Diana’s name, her likeness, and her incomparable spirit.”
The library will be closed on Friday, November 11 in observance of Veteran’s Day. Thank you to our military and their families, who sacrifice so much to keep our country safe and strong.
