"American Hands: a Visual Celebration of Traditional Tradespeople

We are thrilled to have Sally Wiener Grotta's stunning photographs on display during the month of September. This Thursday, September 11th, at 6:30 p.m., Sally will be here to present a slideshow discussion of her show. She has transformed our first floor into a museum of photographs of coopersmiths, caners, book binders, and others who are still practicing the traditional crafts and skills. Stop in any time this month to enjoy the photographs.



Lil Bookie Monster Book Drive

In celebration of our 125th anniversary, and because September is National Literacy Month, a group of dedicated young mothers are collecting board books to add to the library's collection. New or gently used board books may be dropped off at the library or at collection boxes at various sites around Town. The books will benefit our youngest readers, from 0 to 3 years old. You may also order from the Lil Bookie Monster Wish List on Amazon. Thanks for helping them help us all by making our library even better!




We've missed them: all those delicious opportunities to dine and donate. Now the Club is back, with an invitation to the Lightstreet Hotel on Wednesday, September 24th. Pick up your voucher at the desk or print one from HERE to donate 10% of your check on those days.




Toddler Time for ages 18 to 36 months returns on Monday, September 8th at 9:15 a.m. with volunteer Lisa Doerschler. She'll entertain our youngest library users with stories and songs and a dance move or two. No registration necessary.




It's crafts for teens and adults.


This month, the Lonely Sock Club welcomes guest instructor Sandy Whitmire, card-stitcher extraordinaire. If you're a crafter, you already know that Christmas is just around the corner. Get a head start on your Christmas cards with this beautiful craft. Join the Club at 6:00 PM (new, earlier time!) on the first floor, Thursday, September 18th. All materials will be provided for at least one card.
