Library Writers’ Group
Are you a frustrated writer, looking to hone your skills, or just network with other local authors? Come to the Writers’ Group on the first Monday of each month, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm! It’s the chance to meet and get support from other writers and poets, and even get feedback on that plot twist you’re working on. You are invited to bring your dinner, and the Library will provide tea and cookies.
ADL Henna Club
The ADL Henna Club meets the third Saturday of each month at 2:00 p.m. in the Naomi Lane Room (upstairs). Open to teens and adults. Join us for fun, refreshments, and to learn the basics of henna designs (mehndi) from around the world. Not artistically inclined? That’s okay! We need both “artists” and “canvases.” Permission slips required for those under 18 (available at the Library’s Adult Room Front Desk). For more information, call or visit Miss Cindy.
ABE/GED Tutoring Program
The Library offers a free tutoring program for adult learners studying to take the GED battery of exams. This program is volunteer run, and always in need of tutors. If you would like to learn more about tutoring, or if you would like to sign up to begin studying to take the GED, visit the GED Tutoring Program page for our FAQs and then call or visit the Library.
