Readers assemble

We're starting a new book club for children who love to read! Come by the library on the second and fourth Monday of the month at 4 p.m. to read with friends. No monthly book is required; just bring whatever you'd like to read or find a new book on the shelf, find a cozy spot to sit, and read with friends! The club is for ages 8 and up.

True Crime Club

Meet with other true crime fanatics to discuss various true crime cases, criminals and books. Each month, we will have a new theme. On Thursday, Jan. 16, the club is starting with The Golden State Killer and Michelle McNamara's 2018 book, I'll Be Gone in the Dark. This club meets at 3 p.m.

Teen Night -- Minute To Win It

TAB members have created a special teen program for our January night. At 5:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 17, compete in a series of quick and fun challenges against other teens (ages 13-17 only). Please note that the library is closed during the event. To ensure the safety of teens, no one will be permitted in the library and no library business will be conducted.

Library Closure

The library will be closed Monday, Jan. 20, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
