Fall For Your Library

Did you miss last year's holidays? Join us for a holiday RE-do at  our annual Fall for Your Library event! FFYL is our largest  fundraiser and the community's premier wine tasting event.

Puzzle Exchange
Wednesday September 1st

Back by popular demand - bring a puzzle, take a puzzle! Bring  in a gently used, complete puzzle and take one from our stack  to share. Drop in any time we're open to make your trade, and  then let the puzzle fun begin! 

Filling Your Toolbox
Tuesday, September 21, 6-7pm

Whether you're just staring out on your own or you've lived  somewhere for years, every home should have a well-stocked  toolbox. But what tools do you need? Our library's  maintenance man will show you which hand tools are handiest,  and what kind of home repairs they can be used for. Attendees  will be entered into a drawing to win a new toolbox complete  with the essentials! 

Cook the Book
2nd Monday's 6-7:30pm

It's the tastiest book club ever! Come together to share food &  conversation with recipes made from a single cookbook. See  each month's chosen title and register online. Copies of  cookbooks will be available for checkout at the library. 

Adult Coloring Klatch
3rd Wednesdays, 1-3pm

Research has proven that coloring reduces stress, fosters  creativity, and improves concentration. It’s also a great way to  meet new people at the library! Join us on the 3rd Wednesday  of each month for some creative & colorful times. All supplies  provided; drop in as your schedule allows. 

Scrabble Scramble
4th Thursdays, 1-3pm

Attention logophiles! (That’s “word lovers” for the rest of us…).  Exercise your B-R-A-I-N (7 points) by playing Scrabble with  other like-minded adults. Bring your own game board or use  ours; drop in on the 4th Thursday of each month as your  schedule allows for words with *new* friends! Note: Will meet  on 3rd Thursdays in November & December.
