This September the library is offering over 40 programs and events for children, teens, families, and adults to enjoy. Now that everyone is back at school and getting adjusted to their normal routine again, there’s no better time to add the library to your weekly schedule. Bring your family and friends to a library program to discover what we have to offer. Many of our programs recur weekly or monthly so you can come back again and again!
For children, teens, and families, this month we are offering a Family Movie Night on September 1 at 5pm. We will be showing Matilda (PG) and will provide popcorn and drinks. Join us for "Switch" It Up on September 2 at 11am where we meet to play games on our Nintendo Switch. Stick around and hang out with Building Club on the same day at 12pm.
