Each fall we encourage our community to read the same book and talk about it. Offering free books and engaging programming this is a wonderful opportunity to connect with a book - and each other. During September and October the library hosts a variety of programs that relate to the book. Visit the Big Read Page for details.
"Westover has somehow managed not only to capture her unsurpassably exceptional upbringing, but to make her current situation seem not so exceptional at all, and resonant for many others."— NEW YORK TIMES
"Tara Westover is living proof that some people are flat-out, boots-always-laced-up indomitable. Her new book, Educated...is a heartbreaking, heartwarming, best-in-years memoir about striding beyond the limitations of birth and environment into a better life.— USA TODAY
The Friends of the Library generously donate 50 copies of our Big Read book for us to give away to our community on September 8. If you receive a book, please attend some (or all!) of the programs we offer.
Some of our events are sponsored by Beyond the Page, an endowment fund that supports humanities programming in libraries. For more information on this fund, please visit their website.
Along with the exciting and enriching programs listed to the left, the library offers a variety of other resources for adults. A few are listed below.
Memory Loss Caregiver Kits
Created to support caregivers helping people with memory loss, our newest kits are filled with a variety of books, pictures, videos, music and other items designed to evoke memories and invite sharing. Five separate kits, each with a different theme, are available to check out.
