Today's Events

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 beading classes to guitar lessons (typically a six-week program offered a couple of times a year, so watch our newsletter and calendar if you're interested!).

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. 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.

Physical Fitness

Thanks to Asha Shardwaj we are able to offer yoga classes again on a regular basis.

A new activity we've recently embraced is the performing of Radio Plays. We put on It's a Wonderful Life in December, and The Maltese Falcon in March. Expect to see more of these fun events in the future. Want to join us on stage? Watch for our next auditions!
