Throughout the rest of November, a multitude of small events are taking place at the Cozby Library and Community Commons, most lasting only a couple hours. Below are some of the events to look forward to, along with their dates and times.


Cozby Gamers: Nov. 15, 3 – 4:30 p.m.


The Cozby Gamers event is open to all fifth graders and takes place twice a month. It will offer attendees a variety of games and activities.


“[Cozby Gamers is] a really good opportunity because fifth grade is the first age when [kids] are allowed in the library alone,” Cozby Librarian Morgan Griffin said. “Having an event to go to can help them find friends.”


Teen Nite Tonight: Nov. 15, 6 p.m.


Each month at Teen Nite Tonight, the library provides crafts and snacks based off a selected film or television show. This month, attendees will be watching Wreck It Ralph while creating cars made of food.


“The purpose of Teen Nite Tonight is to have kids hang out with people outside their normal day-to day [lives],” Griffin said. “You get to bond with other people around your age over something typically a little goofy.”


Adoption and Foster Care 101: Nov. 15, 7 p.m.


November is National Adoption Awareness Month. ACH Child and Family Services, one of the library’s partners, will give an overview of the fostering and adoption processes at the library’s Adoption and Foster Care 101 event.


“Some of the events we have in our calendar aren’t necessarily run by the library staff,” Griffin said. “We partner with programs who are professionals in the field, so they provide that professional information. We may have families in Coppell interested in fostering and adoption, and this is a good way to get information to them from the right people.”


Got Books? Book club: Nov. 19, 7 p.m.


Got Books? is one of the Cozby Library’s two monthly book clubs, the other one being Page Turners. While the latter restricts participants to discussing that month’s selected novel, Got Books? allows more freedom in what book members read and discuss.


“The reason why we have book clubs is because people in the community like to get together and talk about books they’ve read,” Griffin said. “Having a book club where the books are pretty diversified allows you to read outside your normal reading preferences, which can enhance your world view.”
