September is the ninth month of the year, and it is the only month to feature the same amount of letters in its name in English as the number of the month. It is understandable if September gets you a little bummed out. Summer is a time for relaxation, celebration, and lounging in the warm sun without a care in the world. When September rolls around we’re all deep in the summer groove, so going back to school or work with a sudden change to our schedule can be a shock to the system. September sure has some noteworthy facts & holidays surrounding it, so without further delay, let's jump right in!
September 5th – Be Late For Something Day.
Punctuality is something that is held in high esteem within the modern world, so much so that time-keeping can often dominate a person’s life. That’s why today is a day about taking a step back from the world and turning up late for something, reminding us that more often than not the world will go on without us there.
September 14th – Eat A Hogie Day.
A Hoagie is a Sub Sandwich, and although the origin of this particular sandwich is hazy, most sources confirm that they date back to the early 1900s.
Today is an easy day to celebrate, so celebrate it in your own style just the way you like it.
September 20th – Punch Day.
The term ‘punch’ itself actually comes from the Hindustani word “panch” which means “five”, and thus today celebrates the traditional Punch based on five ingredients many are familiar with.
So seeing as there is no such thing as a bad excuse to drink, make yourself some Punch today and have a glass or five!
September 22nd – White Chocolate Day.
White chocolate first broke onto the chocolate scene in the 1930s and was the creation of, you guessed it, master chocolatiers the Swisse. White chocolate is, in my opinion, the best chocolate going. So it’s safe to say that I’ll have no problem celebrating today and neither will any of the other white chocolate lovers in this world!
September 29th – World Heart Day.
Heart disease and strokes kill 17.1 million people every year – that’s more than cancer, HIV and AIDS, and malaria. The human heart is one of the most complex biological machines out there, but it isn’t invincible. So take today to learn how to look after your heart, because if you look after your heart it will look after you.
Where did the summer go? How is it already September and back-to- school time? I hope you all had a lovely summer and got the chance to read some fabulous books.
At the Troy Community Library, September marks the return of our monthly STEAM activity. September’s STEAM activity will be an in-person, giant sticker mosaic project that will hang on the library’s wall when completed. The in-person STEAM project will be on September 21, from 3:30 PM -5:00 PM. September’s STEAM activity includes a bonus sticker mosaic to-go kit, which will be available starting on September 21, at 3:30 pm. Supplies are limited, and to-go activities are given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
I am excited to let everyone know that after a long hiatus, Storytime will return to the Troy Community Library on September 15, at 10:30 am. Storytimes are usually 30-45 minutes long and geared towards preschool-age kiddos. However, all ages are welcome. It is a great opportunity to meet other parents and kids from the Troy area. The Troy Community Library wishes Troy students a great school year!
If you have questions about anything happening at the library this month, please call Michelle Sturdy at
