It’s pretty dark and gloomy out there today, dear readers, but we are eager to combat our growing autumnal lethargy with a look at the phenomenal programs that we have coming up in November and December! We have done our best to assemble a line-up of classes, concerts, film screenings, and activities to drive away the winter doldrums. You can register for these lovely events by going to our website, giving us a call, or coming in and speaking with your friendly public service staff.
As ever, if you have ideas or suggests for programs you would like to see here at the Library, please let us know! We are here for you, after all. And now, on to the calendar!
