Adult Book Club–B.A.G. Ladies!

The B.A.G. (Books Are Great) Ladies book club has been running strong since its inception on September 11, 2006. Come join this scintillating group as we read everything from murder mysteries to non-fiction tomes. We meet the first Monday of the month at 6 pm. The library will reimburse you up to $5 if you purchase a book on your own; just bring in the receipt! We can also InterLibrary Loan the book for you. Call the library if you have any questions or to see if there are available copies.


Adult Programming Series

We are very excited about our new venture at the library: the Adult Programming Series. Every Wednesday at noon, we have a program scheduled geared toward adults. The programming offered at the library is educational and fun, and is open to all-age appropriate, but it is designed specifically for adults. There are a variety of things scheduled. Take a look at the following calendar. Please note: all programs are scheduled for 12:15 pm to 12:45 pm. For more information, give us a call to see what is upcoming or┬átake a look at our Facebook page! As with our other regularly scheduled programming, this program series will take a break over the summer. June, July and August will be reserved for the Summer Reading Program. We’ll resume our normal schedule in September!
