Ongoing Programs:

In the News: Conversations. Meets first and third Thursdays of each month from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Hungry for intelligent discussion on the events of the day? Then this open discourse program is for you. The group sets the agenda. Moderated by Rick Levy. Reading Room. Free and Open to the Public.

Relief for Grief Group. Meets the last Friday of each month from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. This is a community group for anyone who has experienced a loss, is feeling grief, or grieving. Grief is a natural emotional and physical response to loss. Every person reacts differently and it may be expressed in many ways. This group is neither traditional therapy nor counseling, per se, but it is a safe supportive space where people can come together, speak about their loss, explore their emotions and thoughts, if it is the right time and place for them to do so. Reading Room. Free & Open to the Public.

Third Thursdays Young Locals Game Night. Meets third Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. We are hosting a special series at the Library with games and refreshments for young locals 21+ years! New to the area, or back and looking to meet your peers? Free & Open to the Public.
