Library Lingo

Book Tasting Book Club

We will be discussing the book The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin on Saturday July 9 at 10:15am in the library meeting room.  Copies are available for checkout at the circulation desk.

Adult Coloring Club

We meet the last Saturday of each month in the library's meeting room.  Drop in style between 9am-1pm. The library supplies coloring sheets and colored pencils.  You are welcome to bring your own supplies.  No registration needed.  Color, relax, make new friends!  To maintain a calming environment, we ask that no children attend please.

Our Scrabble Club meets the 3rd Thursday of every month from 9-11am.  The next gathering is June 16.


Storytimes are Fridays at 11:30am.  No Storytimes in August.  New during the month of July:  BOOK BABIES!  Storytime for babies through 24 months and their caregivers.  Stories, music, rhymes, and puppets.
