Maggie Armatys from the Lazy Girls Kitchen on YouTube stopped by the Woonsocket Harris Public Library and taught everyone from preschoolers to high schoolers how to make delightfully spooky brownies with a variety of candy toppings. This is a great idea if you have a Halloween Party or family gathering and can adapt it for your family activity. This was so much fun. Don't worry we will have her back for more foodie fun at the library very soon. Until then enjoy the video.

 

 

There will be no Book Buddies on Wednesday November 23rd as the library will close at 5pm on that day as part of our Thanksgiving recess.

Congress will receive classified briefings today on the Chinese spy balloon that was shot down off the coast of South Carolina. An F-22 U.S. military jet shot down the balloon on Saturday using a Sidewinder missile. Fox News says House lawmakers will be briefed on the incident at 8am Eastern. Senators will be briefed later in the day.        President Biden says Russian leader Vladimir Putin has "already lost Ukraine." Biden gave an interview with PBS on Wednesday and said there's "no way" Russia will succeed in its occupation of Ukraine. The President also said American aid to Ukraine is open-ended, and called it vital.        A new study suggests that over 600 doctors may have died of COVID-related causes in the early days of the pandemic. The study from Stanford University claims there was "excess mortality" among U.S. physicians from March of 2020 to December of 21, and that over 600 more doctors died than may have been expected.        The Alex Murdaugh double murder trial will resume this morning. The South Carolina lawyer is accused of fatally shooting his wife and son in June of 2021 on their estate in Moselle. Yesterday the trial ended early after the courthouse was evacuated because of a bomb threat.        A father and son who were apart for two years after illegally crossing the U.S. border are suing the government over their separation. The two Guatemalans filed a lawsuit in Illinois last week seeking damages for emotional distress and negligence. The father and his then 16-year-old son crossed the border into Texas in 2018 and were separated after they were caught.        A new study says Boston is the best city for dating this Valentine's Day. The ticketing website Eventbrite ranked cities based on how many dating events they hold, and Boston came in at number one followed by New York City. Philadelphia came in at number three on the list, followed by Denver and Seattle.
