Adult Department Programs & Events

The following is an overview of our regular programs and may be subject to change. Read our monthly newsletters or pick up a printed calendar (available at the library) for up-to-date information each month.

Arts & Crafts

The Adult Department regularly sponsors a variety of hands-on programs, from tatting and painting classes to a Pin-Pals group.

Watch also for the talented musicians we bring in over the holidays and for special programs.

Book Clubs

Our "Timely and Timeless" book club can be found meeting, usually at local restaurants, on the fourth Tuesday of every month, starting at noon, while our "Books and Brewskies" book club meets at 7 PM every 2nd Thursday of the month at Downtown on the Square. New members are always welcome.


The second Saturday of every month is our "Dark City" movie night. We also periodically hold Sci Fi movie marathons, from Red Dwarf to Star Wars to Dr. Who, so watch our calendars for these special events.

Cooking Classes

A series of cooking classes is scheduled for the third Wednesday of the month at 6 PM.

Other Fun Activities

Every year we hold an exciting Jeopardy! tournament, usually in January or February. Now you can also try out one of Ray's Jeopardy boards in PDF format!

Another fun activity for both participants and audiences is the performing of Radio Plays. Past repertoire has included It's a Wonderful Life, The Maltese Falcon, and The Princess Bride. Expect to see more of these fun events in the future. Want to join us on stage? Watch for our next auditions!
