Upcoming Events

Monday, October 26, 6:30 pm

The culmination of our Big Read is the Community Book Discussion. We'll meet via zoom this year, which is a wonderful way to talk with people right now. Really!  We strongly encourage everyone to participate. All are welcome, even if you didn't read (or finish) the book. This is the time our community comes together to share our thoughts and feelings about the book and programming.  It's a time to connect with each other, laugh, learn and grow. We look forward to talking with you!    Email for the link to join. 






Monday, November 2, 10:00 am

Because you were all (hopefully) so involved in the Big Read throughout October, we do not have book club in Nov.  We'll met again in December though! 



Monday, November 2, 10:00 am

Because we all need a little escape, we created simple craft kits designed for adults! Stop by the library beginning November 1 and grab your own Cheater Watercolor Take & Make kit! This month we are creating postcards and other gorgeous papers that you can turn into anything you can imagine! The kits are first come/first served and are available during our Express Library or by scheduling a Drive Up Appointment.

Watch the video tutorial here!
