Summer Reading Concludes!

We want to send out a big THANK YOU! to everyone who participated in the adult summer reading program!

We also want to thank everyone who sponsored and volunteered time and money to make the program extra great, especially our Tuesday evening presenters.

Profound thanks to all the folks who braved the heat and sun on August 1st in order to give us a rockin' good Block Party!  We could not have done it without support from all the vendors, organizations, and library staff who spent the entire day helping.  You're all superheroes and rock stars!

Cinematic Escapes returns to Thursday night with "Culinary Delights"!
All showings begin at 7:00 PM in the Community Room

Our September film series is an eclectic mix of films which all have one thing in common:  Food.   Our cinematic buffet begins with a visit to a struggling Italian restaurant in 1950’s New York and is followed with a sidelong road trip through California Wine Country.  These will be paired with the tale of a modern woman following in Julia Child’s footsteps, and garnished with a couple of scrumptious foreign films along with an animated Pixar classic.  Bon Appetit!
